New York. March 21).— The World eor- 
resp.)n(lent whj interviewed President 
Kruger at Pretoria Feb. 7, says: Mr 
Kriiger explained at length tEie efforts 
which the Pritish authi rities made to 
seal u|) Delagoa bay, and then to]d of the 
niessaKe he ^'ent to L.urd Sali.'^liury cun- 
ct'rning it. He said ht- refu.'^ed to havt- 
any more eurrespondence with Mr. 
Chamberlain, but frequently cabled to 
Ivird .Salisbury. In one lablegram he 
asked Lord Salisbury to allow foudstutt 
ti) t-ntcr through DtdaKua bay. or ttiey 
would be comjudk-d to feed the 300(J 
Pritish prisoners in Pretoria on maise 

L>rd Salisbury ilid not rtply. but a 
message ^aKned "Chamberlain" explained 
that the embargo on tt.odstuffs had been 
rai.«<ed three days before. 

^lr. Kruger laughed heartily when he 

told that the Chamberlain nussage was 

t •legiai-tned back to Lord Salisbury with 

the (|uery. "Is this true?" The president 

' added: "NVe have not heard from 

I Chamljerlain since." and laughed for 

! fully half a minute. 

J Secretary Keitz then t')ld of a second 
I series oi communications between the 
i president and L)rd Salisbury concerning 
the prisoners who were taken by the 
HrilLsh at Douglas, Cape Colony, and 
who. althougti they became citizens of 
the Orange Free State, are being tried 
in Cai'<^ Town for high treason. 

The (iresident sent a cablegram direct- 
ly t.> Lord Salisbury demanding that thv 
i Douglas prisoners be treated only as* 
prisoners of war and not as treasonabU 
I t-ubjects of her majesty, and st.ited thai 
■ if they were executed, reprisals would 
i be made. 

Lord Salisbury replied that 
if one of the Pretoria prisoners 
were Injured, both President 
Steyn and President Kruger 
W(>iJld be hanged at tile con- 
(lusion of tlie war. 

The president thought that was harsh 
language to use. and, according to Mr. 
Keitz's statement, replied in effect: 

"Gd ahead witli your hanging, 
but remember that your son, 
Lcrd Eilward Cecil, is in Ma- 

Mr. Kruger has no reply to this mess- 

•My burghers are fighting bravely." 
ho said, with mucli, "and 
they will continue to do sa until Greit 
Hritain asks for peace or withdraws her 
soldiers. We cannot expect to conquer 
several hundred thousand men in a day. 
but my burghers are going ahead rapid- 
ly, as yiu can see by looking at t'.ie

Roberts Getlln{ Ready and Advance 
May Begin Monday. 

London, March 29, 5:15 a. m. — Lord 
Roberts has sent 10,000 troops to Glen, 
ten miles mrth of Bloemfontein, on the 
railway. This is a preliminary to the 
general advance. 

Immense quantities of sifores have now 
been accumulated at Bloemfontein. and 
Lord Roberts' infantry is seemingly 
about to move. An Impression, which 
( an be traced to the war office, is abiv)ad 
that the advance will begin next Mon- 
day. Boer observation jmrties are hov- 
ering near Bloemfontein, but Lord 
Roberts has 135 miles to cover before 
reaching the great i>osition which the 
Boer.s are preparing at Kroonstad. 
Moving ten miles a day is probably the 
l>est he can do with field transport. 
Theref ire he cann<jt hardly engage ISie 
Boers in force for two weeks. The re- 
<on.'<tru<tion of the railway behind him 
may even delay an advance into t-.e 
Transvaal until May. 

Meanwhile all th» important towns in 
the Free State w thin Lord Roberts" 
reach are being garrisoned. Thabanchu. 
I riilipp. li.s. Fauresmith and Jagersfon- 
tein are thus held. 

Among the items cabled from Pre- 
toria is a statement that prominent resi- 
dents there *ibject to a defense of Pre- 
toria, and desire that President Kruger 
f-huuld retire to Lindenburg. It is al- 
leged that the principal buildings at 
Johannesburg have been undermined by 
order of Kruger. 

A dispatch to the Daily Mail from 
I»urenzo Marques, dated March 28. 
says: The Frencti colonel. Villelois de 
Maries, has V»een appointed tj the com- 
mand of the foreign legion which is 
operating in the Free State. Gen. Prin- 
sloe, recently arrested, is charged by the 
Boers with high treason.

L<;ndon. March 2&.— The war ofTice here

"Gen. Clements occupied Fauresmiih 
today without ojipo.'^ition. One K- 
p. under and one Martini-Maxim were 
di.-jcovtred in a prosp -cting shaft of a

He Issues a Cirouiar on the Latter's 

I Lmdon. March 29.— 'il:e corresnond' nt 
! of the Times at Laurenzo Marques. te!e- 
I graining Monday, says: 
j Mr. Steyn has Issued a circular Icttvi 
! dealing with the prvK-IamatLm of Lord 
Roberts and declaring it to be that "the 
enemy's policy is. as it always has b.»en 
in S(»uth Afric.i, to divide and antagon- 
ize it.s opponents." The circular goes v>n 
to say that the British government at- 
tempted to '"seduce the government of 
the Free State, by treacherous mean.-, 
'rjm the convention of the Transvaal, 

! in order to facilitate the swallowing up 
if the republic. " 

He repudiates the charge that the 
burghers have been misled by their 
leatlers, and then says: 

"The enemy now by fair promis s 
.seeks to divide us by offering a reward 
lor disloyalty. Could a grosser insult b.- 
oiYered than to dissuade us from a 
:-acred duty? Let us not be misled by 
this ruse. 

"He would only leave the disloyal 
burghers alone when he had his foot on 
the neck of the Afrik.mder nation. That 
he is already disloyal to his pnmilse is 
clear from the shameful destruction of 
property at Jacobsdal and the -arrests 
at Bloemfontein of burghers who trust 
in bis promises. Although tlie capitol is 
in the enemy's hands, the battle is not 
lost. On th<» contrary, this is a greater 
reason for lighting more fiercely. The 

I power of the country is not dependent 

: upon any town." 

There is unmistakable evidence that 
this letter is the work of State Secretary 

: Reltz. Now that Mr. Fi.«ciier is gone, it 

. is evident that Mr. Reltz is supreme in 

\ Pretoria. 

A large number of men over 60 years 
of age are being commandeered although 
not legally liable for service. 

According to trustworthy information 
from Pretoria, the total stock of Mausei 
ammunition. 5.000.000 rounds, was issued 
to the Free State burghers. The Boers 
are now issuing Lee-Metford cartridges. 
of which they have only 500.000. and 
Martini-Henri cartridges, of which they 
originally possessed 4.000.000. Ttr^ 
creusotes ammunition Is almost exhaust- 
ed. The smokeless i>iwder which was 
manufactured is proving deficient in 

; quality, and the experiment of rechars- 

; ing the Mauser <artridges has proveil a 
failure, owing to the Inability of th- 

, Boers to make caps. A laager for womvn 

I and children is being constructed some 

1 miles out of town.

Critics Busy— Story of Foreign Re- 
inforcements For Boers. 

London. March 29.— Conjecture as to 
Lord Roberts advance from Bloemfoii- 
teln Is the topic of the day. and is 
'Ikely to continue so If t'^e British com- 
mander-in-chief in South Africa con- 
ceals his movements ae carefully as he 
has done in the past. April 2 is set by 
various critics as the probable date of 
the departure of the main ar:ny from 
Blotmfi'iitein. It is pointed out t'lit 
ihere will then be over a weeks* ha;"0 
marching before Kroonstad Is reached, 
though there setms no certainty that 
Kritoiistad will entirely occupy Lord 
Hcberts' attention. 

The advance, when it does occur, will 
probably be made by parallel column;- 
along a broad frjnt. The movements 
if the cavalry force and part of the in- 
lantry toward Glen can scarcely be con- 
strued as an actual advance, although 
t.iey undoubtedly point to the immin- 
' in J (f such a step. 

But only a small part of Gen. Gatacre's 
forces have yet arrived at Bloemfontein. 
ind until that nuvement is completed 
it is not likely Lord Roberts will start 
lor Pretoria. 

The latest news from Bloemfontein. 
contained in a dispatch published in the 
second edition of the Times, and dated 
Wednesday. March 2S. again dwells upoii 
the necessity for not making a prema- 
ture advance. This correspondent, \\\\~> 
on several occasions .seemed to have been 
chosen as the mouthpiece of Lord Rob- 
erts, cables: 

"It should be clearly understxid thai 
the present halt in the vicinity of 
Liloemfontein Is absolutely necessary as 
a military precaution. It should be 
borne in mind that we are about t . 
enter on a new phase of the operatiins. 
with the main communications ihrough 
a recently occupied hostile coimtry. and 
that the recent successes neccisitated a 
great expenditure of horse po\rer. Here 
and in Xatal we shall move on the com- 
mencement of the South African winter, 
and must be prepared to face the effects 
of the first frost upon such animals a.'; 
may be affected with horse sickness. It 
would be suicidal to push troops forward 
till they are equipped to meet the ex- 
posure of winter. Horses, c.othing and 
food we must have." 

The correspondent adds that the Boer 
forces have been re-equinj»ed. and he 
savs he is fully convinced that liiO.OOO 
foreign troops have been landed to aid 
the republics. 

From this the inference might be 
drawn that the London critics have been 
premature in prophesying an immediate 
advance, as at Kimbcrley and Paarde- 
berg. The best based conjecture is well 
nigh worthless as to when Lord Rob- 
erts contemplates moving. 

A deputation of Dutch church minis- 
ters had an audience with Premier 
Schreiner at Cape Town today. The 
ministers urged the separation of the 
sick and well Boer prisoners, and asked 
that the sick be not sent tc St. Helena. 

Mr. Schreiner replied that he had no 
power in such matters, but t\ould use his 
friendly offices. He added that he had 
made strong representations to the im- 
perial government against sending any 
of the prisoners to St. Helena, but 
wlthtHit success. 

It is reported that the prison transport.^ 
will sail for St. Helena at the end of this

Londrn. March 29.— The nio?t seriou.=? 
indictment of ilie Boer methods of war- 
fare which has yet appeared in England 
comes from Julian Ralph, the American 
war correspondent, in a letter froai 
Kimberley, published in this morning's 
Daily Midi. It is in part as follows: 

"It i.s a war steadily and slealthily 
I'lanned by the queen's Dutch subjects 
and the Dutch republics for fully twent;: 
years. Fur hetween four and six years 
they have been equipped for it. They be- 
gan purchasing arms and jdanning d'- 
fenses before the Jameson raid. Let no 
one fool you with the falseliuijd ab..ut 
that. Finally, President Kruger bogged 
President Styen to declare war three 
ytars before President Steyn consented. 

"Next rid your mind of the notion 
that you are crushing two farw^er re- 
p-abliis. There is not a farmer in the 
two countries, and cnly one, the Free 
Slate, was a republic in any way ex- 
<epting misnaming. These people a.e 
herders of cattle. .«heep and goats, iiKe 
the Israelites of old and the Afridis, 
Tuiks and Balkan people of today. Hi.s 
(the lioets) so-called farms are as. nature 
mitde them, merely reaches . f veldt 
whfie on his cattle graze. On each one 
he has ut up a home, and its surround- 
ings are almost invariaijiy mere rep^^l- 
lant and disorderly than any iiouse I 
e\er saw. except the cabins of freed 
riaves in the T'nited States. Their 
camps and strongholds from which we 
have routed them are the filthiest places 
I have known men of any ^otx. \o live in, 
and I have seen Red Indian. Chinese and 
Turkish camps, and the tamps of many 
sorts of blackmen. 

"As to their braver.v and honor, I have 
seen and heard sufficient to fill a page 
of the I>aily Mail with .accounts of their 
cowardly and dastardly behavior before 
t came to Kimberley. But here I find 
they ha\e ijeen guilty of different and 
original enormltie.'. Here they killf'd 
I ur wounded, and laid their i)odies in a 
row after one of the forays out cf town. 
Here they armed many t.lacks to fight 
us, all the world how scandal- 
ously fraudulent were their exclama- 
tions of horror at the idea of our em- 
pl jylng native troops. 

"Theie has hard'y been a battle m 
uhi< h the Boor.'j have not abused either 
the white flag or the Geneva cross, or 
bith At Spion Kop our people saw 
them loading Maxims in ambulances in 
order to get them safely away. This we 
sa-.v them do at Modder river also, and 
Kimberley is where the Boers shelled 
the funeral cortege of George L. 
Abram, an American. 

"At many places they fired on our 
ambulances. I saw them do it at the 
Modder river, and saw them fire on our 
.-stretcher beaiers in that battle lime and 
tiine again.. 

"When we entered Jacobsdal it looked 
like a city of doctors. Every man In 
the streets wore the Red Cross bandage 
on his arm. These were the men who 
had just been shooting us from behind 
garden walls. There -.vas notliing no\-eI 
o'- original about their sec-king the 
c(.wardly shelter of the doctor'.s badge. 
We have become quite actustomed to it. 
We once entered a Boer laager after a 
v:ctory and found of these 
h^ gus doctors and seven or eight wound- 
ed for their patients.

ing the houses of the loyalists in the

of instances, they have smashed into 
kindling and toin into ribbons whatever 
they did not want or could not cany off. yet, they have fouled the walls of 
the homes of defenseless women with 
obscene writings. 

"They never knew the value of an oath

mutual inteiests is a project to unite 
tiie line belonging to the Pennsylvania 
railroad running from Washington to 
Quantico. Va.. and the Richmond, 
Fredericksburg & Potomac railroad ex- 
tending from Quantico to Richmond. 

It is proposed to make the comliina- 
tion for the purpose of maintaining an 
open highway for railroad service be- 
tween the North and the South and the 
parties nam.ed as likely to be in such an 
agreement, if it is consummated, are 
to be the Pennsylvania railroad, the 
Baltimore & Ohio, the Atlantic Coast 
line and the Southern railroad. One of 
the preliminaries to such a move was 
affected at the recent meeting of the 
stockholders of the Richmond. Freder- 
icksburg & Potomac railroad, when It 
was decided to do away with the scale 
system of voting the stock of the com- 
pany. The proposition to wipe out this 
feature was voted on by about 15.000 of 
the preferred and common shares of the 
company out of a total issue of some 
17,000 shares. It received the unani- 
mous sanction cf the stock represented 
at the meeting. 

Under the scale system of voting a 
majority of the stock, if held by one 
owner, did not mean a control of the 
company, as. for example. "lOO shares of 
stock if divided among fifty owners 
would have a greater number of votes 
than if held in a block by one owner. 
The effect of the stockholders' action is 
to give the Atlantic Coast line the con- 
trol of the Richmond. Fredricksburg & 
Potomac railroad. This property, in 
connection with the line of the Pennsyl- 
vania railroad, forms the neck through 
which a large share of traffic move- 
ment north and south via Washington 

The scheme of a mutuality of inter- 
ests is the plan recently inaugurated by 
the Pennsylvania. Baltimore & Ohio and 
Vanderbilt lines to put an end to the 
building of parallel lines when the busi- 
ness can be cared for by the existing 
routes. With the charter recently 
given by the legislature of Virginia to 
the Seaboard Air line interests author- 
ity is available to parallel from Rich- 
mond to Washington the line formed 
- from Vancouver todav ravs forty dtie- I hy the Richmpnd. Fredricksburg & 

- ' . . , - Potomac and the line from Quantico. 

The proposition now under consider- 
ation is evidently aimed to do away 
with the necessity for the construction 
of such a line. The Seaboard Air line 
is a joint user with the Atlantic Coast 
line of the existing route between Rich-

Minnesota Senator Urges

Opposition to tlie Tariff Is 

Growing From Day

Washington. March 29.— AUhuugh It had 
not been announced beforehand that Sen- 
Htor D.ivis would »pe;ik yesterday after- 
noon <»ii the Porto Rico nill, there \v is a 
large niunber of visitors in the galleries 
when he began at 2:30. Senator Nelson, 
pule and looking quite 111, came out to lis- 
ten to his colleague champion the cause of 
free trade and several members came over 
from the houye, t'ongrtssman Heatwole 
being amoog the first to make his appear- 
ance in llie senate. Representative Page 
Morris, K. «'. Slovens ami McClery came in 
Vftiiif. Davis was speaking. 

Two or three votes by roll call had been 
taken on me Alaska loll, and there was a 
l.irge attendance in the senate wlnn 
Davis commenced his speech. The sen- 
ator had no manuscript, only a few noti s, 
and he spoke off hanti. He Oegaii l>y say- 
ing hi; was In favor of having a vote 
at the earliest day possible, anil, under 
the circumstances, he had not at this time 
prepared as exhaustive an argument as he 
might otherwise have iione.

II partisan ipiestlon. It <!hoidU not be bo 
considereil. Mr. Davis said that he would 
conline his ohservalions to the house Oill. 
It cannot Ik- denied, said Davis, thai from 
the lime the house bill was reported and 
Its provisions became known, there ha^ : 
arisen and constantily increased a strimg 
opposition to the ptjilc.v of enacting a taritf 
against Porto Kico. It has grown Irom tlay 
to day and is not confined to any political 

Early. Opposition to the house hill has 
een accentuated until there is now a ris- 
ing feeling of public indignation 
the tariff features of the bill. 

"This oi>positlijn comes from every part 
of the country, from every class In each 
community and from every walk of life. 
The country has seldom been more thor- 
oughly aroused on any question before 
congress. W'iiy should this tarlfl: be insist- 
ed on; why fi>rce it on the .single proposi- 
tion of a certain percentage when ihere aro 
so many other methods which wii 1 relieve 
the situation? 

'•Far better it be to allow the existing 
constitution to remain than to keep up a 
discussion tliat is aggravating all our peo- 
ple at home, dividing i>ubllc sentiment and 
not creating the proper remedy, in my 
judgment, tor the relief of the people of 
Porto Ulco." 

Senator Davis contended that the peo- 
ple >f Porto Rico would accept anci be 
contented with the extension of our in- 
ternal laws. He said Porto Rico came to 
us voluntarily. It did nol cost us a dol- 
lar to ilisarm aii.v of the people. When 
Gen. Miles antl his legions ot American 
soldiers marched through the Island he 
was welcomed as a popular hero and not 
repudiated as an Invader.

had been already adopted as to Hawaii, 
with that now proposed for Porto Rico.

ou« proceeding which might make trou- 
ble in the Pnillpi>ines in dealing witn 
these islands in the futuci*. 'Sufficient 
unto the dav Is not the only evil thereof 
and 1 might add the good also," said Sen- 
ator Davis. 

The I'Uillpplnes, he said, presented an 
entirclv different question. almost as 
great as the distance of SOOi) miles be- 
tween Washington and Manilla, as com- 
pared wit.^ ih.! distance of 75(1 miles be- 
tween Washington and San Juan. Davis 
oald some attention to that class of pub- 
lic men who claim that this question is 
not understood. It is as well understood 
throughout the eountry at all the gr> at 
centers of population as it Is right here 
in Washington. 

The s»nator warned his colleagues 
against turning a deaf ear to the senti- 
ment of the people. He paid a high trib- 
ute to the press of the country, and said 
that In all the great jicwspapers of ihi:j 
cnunlrv were men who thought and re. id 
and examined and investlKated every 
great question. They are the reflex o^ 
public sentiment. 

Rv this time Davis became thorougluy 
warmed up to his subjwt and Inqulreil 
what the people of the country and llie 
people of Porto Rico would say and what 
thev would have a right to sav it this 
proposed leglslathoi Is enacted into law. 
What does It mean? In stead of impos- 
ing laws on ll(|Uors and tobacco It pro- 
poses to give the inhabitants of Porto 
Rico free rum and tax their wearing ap- 
parel. Free rum and tax their boots and 
shoes: free rum and liquor, that gn-ai 
revenue producer for the United States, 
and still a tax on the actual every- 
dav necessities of Porto Rico. 

Mr. Davis closed with a warning to iho 
senate that the great body of thinking, 
intelligent and fair-minded jieople of the 
I'nlted States would not, in his judgment, 
sanction this proposed tariff legislation.

annual report made a plea for additional 
help in the held. He advocated a perma-

U was proposed that the grand master 
be authorized to expend, after consultation 
with the llnance committee, such funds 
as he might deem proper for the advance- 
ment of the order. To do this It would be 
neces.sary to increase the per capita dues

Farm Lands Are Advancing 

and Many Good Sales 

Are Reported. 

Sioux Falls. S. D., March 29.— There is 
now no longer any doubt that the Influx of 
new settlers to South Dakota this sea.son 
will assume larger proportions than during 
any year since tht« early 'SOs, when the 
great rush to Dakota occurred. Dast year 
the population of the state was Increased 
many thousaniLs by the arrivals of new 
settlers, but In comparison with the vol- 
ume of Immigration which already H 
reaching the slate, all former records since 
the early SOs will be surpassed. The 
weekly newspapers of South Dakota con- 
tain many Items of reference to the arrival 
of new settlers, the sale of farm lands at 
good price.- and other Information which 
leaves no doubt that the state will this 
season enjoy the greatest prosperity in its 
histor.v. The favorable feature of the 
i)reseni immigration, as well as that of 
last year. Is that the new arlvals are farm- 
ers from states farther to the East. In 
this particular the character of the new- 
comers materiall.v differs from of a 
large jiroportion of the settlers who pai- 
tlcipated in the "great trek" Dakotaward 
eighteen or nineteen years aRO. 

Thousands of men who had not prevlous- 
Iv engaged in farming at all and, Jlgura- 
llvelv speaking, did not know a plaw from 
a harrow, participated in the rush, secured 
quarter sections of government land under 
the provisions of the timber-culture laws, 
and eng.iged in an occupation for which 
thev were not tilted by training or exper- 
ience. Neither had they the nece.s.sary 
capital, and from the start were handi- 
capped by having to mortgage their prop- 
erty in order to procure the cash neces- 
sar.v to purchase horses, agricultural Im- 
plements, etc. The result was that in 
numerous Instances their efforts were met 
with failure. Failing to become rich in a 
year or two. as they expected, and many 
having lost their farms through mortnage 
foreclosure, they gave the country a bad 
name. Now, however, this portion of the 
Northwest has entirely recovered from the 
dainage resulting from the circulation of 
"hard-luck" storit^, such as were set in 
motion bv the "tenderfeet" who were dis- 
appointed in their ambition of becoming 
rich in a brief perlo<l at occupation.-! for 
which thev were not lilted, and without 
the neces.sitv of working hard. They wero 
the "get-rich-quick ■ men of their day, and 
because failure attended their feehle and 
misdirected efforts fhey sought to "play 
even" by slandering the country. It has 
at least one advantage in which It Is un- 
surpassed bv any other region In the world 
—the profits from a single sea.son's crop 
of 100 acres of land will pay the purchase 
price of the land. This has not. of course, 
been the general experience of farmers, 
but numerous Instances can be cited in 
which this was the case. 

The following paragraphs, selected at 
random from weekly newspapers published 
at points in sixteen of the tifty or moro 
South Dakota counties which are situateci 
east of the Missouri river and covering a 
perhxi of only aijout ten days, wi^li give 
an idea of the volume of Immigration now 
pouring into the state and the prices at 
which farm lands are being sold: 

A real estate deal of more than usual 
mngnitude has been concluded at Center- 
vllle. Turner ctjunty. »)y which M. W. 
Cummings secures possession of what Is 
known as the Blades farm. The farm con- 
tains SuK) acres and was purchased for $21.- 
,-,,jl>_nearly $27 per acre. J. J. Gallegly. of 
Tama county, Iowa, has Just concluded 
the purchase of the Ixiveselt farm of 100 
acres, .located live miles from Centerville.

Poppe, of Buckle.v, Iroquois county. 111., 
has purchased tiie Puller farm. In the 
same locality, for $:iriOo. The farm will be 
rtciipled at onci bv the new owner. Robert 
Prince has sold his farm near Parker, also 
In Tune couniv. to John Gam, of Fillmore, 
Minn., for $:5m A party of seven families, 
with goods, horst s, et<'.. have arrived In 
Norway township, in the .same county, an.l 
liave secured farms, which th<y will cn>'- 
tlvate. In one day three carloads of Im- 
migrant goods were unloaded In the Par- 
ker yards. Jaiob J. Ivaufman. of Childs- 
town. Turner county, a year ago. pur- 
chased a quarter section of land in that 
localitv which he has just sold for $»!<"• 
more that he paid for it, he to also retain 
the crop raised on the land this year. Peter 
Hanson and family have arrived in the 
same locality from Irvington. Neb., and 
have settled iii)on a farm which Hanson 
recently purchased. 

It Is announced that Manchester town- 
ship. Kingsl>ury county, will secure a 
laiMC cidonv of farmers direct from Noi- 
wav this season. Most of the newcomers 
will be provid'jd with sutncient funds to 
j)Ui chase farms. E. J. English, late of 
Primghar, Iowa, has purchased a Rings- 
buiv count V farm and already has moved 
upon the land. He has purchased the lum 
her and other material necessary for the 
construction of a good house and barn 
on the land. The Smith families from near 
Siblev, Iowa. who. a few weeks ago pur- 
chased the David Ross farm and adja- 
cent land to the amount of MW acres, near 
DeSmet, Klntsbury county, have moved 
uv)on the land. These people are expe- 
rienced stockmen and have come prepared 
to engage in farming and stock raising on 
a large scale. They brought with them 
nine carloads of immigrant effects. Five 
families, consisting of eighteen people, 
have arrived at Iroquois from Iowa and 
settled on farms in that vicinity. 

Brookings, known as the "banner coun- 
iv." reports that It is getting its share of 
new settlers. In one week thirty-seven 
carloads of Immigrant goods were unload- 
ed at one station for distribution over that 
particular portion of the county. It Is es- 
timated that thus far this spring fully 
seventy-flvc carloads of Immigrant ef- 
fects have arrived at points in Brookings 
countv. In one consignment which ar- 
rived at Elkton there were twenty carloads 
belonging to twenty families, the mem- 


U Frequently Caused by the Worry 
Attendant On Dyspepsia. 

If you would win in the Battle of Life 
you must have a clear brain, keen 
senses, perfect vigor, shrewdness, en- 
ergy and ambition. 

Dyspepsia kills these needful quali- 
ties. You can't succeed if you are con- 
stantly tortured by dyspepsia or indi- 
gestion. But you can get rid of dys- 
pepsia, indigestion, biliousness, sour 
stomach, or any other ailment of stom- 
ach or digestive organs by simply 
taking one or two of Dodd's Dyspepsia 
Tablets after each meal. 

With a perfect digestion go a strong, 
healthy body, a clear, capable brain, 
vigor, ambition, determination, ener- 
gy, activity, keen, alert senses. Dodd's 
Dyspepsia Tablets ensure all these. 

Dodd's Dyspepsia Tablets have nev- 
er failed to cure any or all of the dis- 
eases named when they have been 
fairly tried. They cannot fail. 

Dr. R. B. Strong, New York City, 
writing in the American Journal of 

' Her.lth, describes Dodd's Dyspepsia 
Tablets as a remedy which could not 
possibly be more efficacious though it 

t emanated from a council of the lew&ing 

' physicians of the world. 

The Antomaton chess player is a won- 
derful tning. It plays 
a perfect game inade 
its limitations. But 
once outside the 
routine moves, the 
Automaton is a 
I failure. Much of 
medical practice 
is as limited in its 
way as the 
moves of the 
Automaton at 
chess. No 
medical man 
can move with 
success outside his experience and train- 
ing. For that reason tlie local doctor, 
often gives up as hopeless a case which 
is quite curable when greater skill and 
experience are brought to bear. 

It is the so-called " incurable " and 
"hopeless" cases, which come in such 
numbers to Dr. R. V. Pierce, of Buffalo, 
N. Y., for treatment. Men and women 
with weak lungs, obstinate coughs, ema- 
ciated bodies and fevered cheeks have 
found in Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical 
Discovery the true elixir of life. "The 
blood is the life " and the " Discovery " 
by increasing the activity of the blootl 
making glands, and restoring to healthy 
action the digestive and nutritive organs, 
places the entire system in a condition to 
throw off disease. There is no alcohol, 
opium, or other narcotic, in "Golden

Mr. Chas. Hun wick, of Lenox, Macomb Co., 
Mich., writes: *' I have never felt better in my 
life than I do now. I have taken Dr. Pierce's 
Golden Medical Discovery right along. I think 
I am doing finely. I do not cough now and I can 
sleep like a school lxj>'. I think I will have to 
change ray mind about 'Patent Medicines,' as I 
never had much faith in them; but you 
know that I ha\-e been treated in two hospitals 
and by three doctors besides, and received no 
benefit; so I think your medicine is the only 
medicine for me."

the same county. In one week ten carloads 
of Immigrant effects were unloaded. The 
newcomers are mostly from Eastern Iowa 
and from the vicinity of Luverne, Minn. 

It Is estimated that over tifty new fam- 
ilies have settled on farms in McCook 
county during the past six months. The 
other day a special train of immigrants 
arrived at Salem. The newcomers will 
settle on farms in that vicinity. This is 
nnly the advance guard of some three of 
ftiuV other special trains now being made 
up in Iowa, destined for the same place. 
Almost every day "prairie schooners' 
loaded with household goods and farming 
Implements, and followed by herds of eat- 
tle and horses, pass through towns In .>lc- 
Cook county, bound for the Interior of the

A real estate firm at Big Stone, Grant 
county, has sold n. quarter section of land 
to Charles Koch for $(>*)•>— the highest 
price at which farm land has been sold 
in that locality for some time. Koch 
bought a tract of land near Hallock, Minn.,

Eastern Market Inclines 1e 

Weakness While the 

West Holds Steady. 

Cleveland, March 29.— The Iron Trade 
Review says: 

The end of the Carnegie Steel company 
litigation, the formation of the Carnegie 
company with $160,000,000 capital, and 
the launching of the New American 
Steel Sheet company, make the past 
week the most noteworthy of the year 
thus far. The developments concerning 
the Carnegie company are received wiih 
general .satisfaction in the trade as 

guaranteeing the continued strength of 
the strongest producer, and averting di- 
vision thai could only cause weakness. 

The market changes of the week havo 
not been so noteworthy as the corporate 
movements. The campaign for lower 
prices for inm and steel products has 
given rise to some l)earish reports, first 
publisched at New York and freely 
wired across the country. Intimation 
that con.r-essions were being made in im- 
portant lines, in which quotations have 
been practically unchanged for month.s — 
steel billets, rails and structnral ma- 
terial being questi<ined — have been cir- 
culated in a manner calculated lo create 
weakness. Without question, buyer..? 
have been disappointing to those in the 
trade who expected it to change tho 
monotony of months of abstehti(m froni 
the market. But no general statement 
a< ^urately fits the situation at the pres- 
ent moment. 

The East is more inclined to pessim- 
ism than the Central West. The over- 
shadowing inlluence of the Bessemer 
steel market is evident in the conditions 
at Pitlsliurg. Chicago and Intervening 
territory. The $35 l)asis for billets in the 
Central West is unshaken in spite of r '- 
I'orts. nothing having <i;curred to dis- 
turl) the concert of large intere.sts in th>' 
past few months. Be.ssemer iron al.^o i.^ 
firm, and the piice for the se.-ond half 
likely to be fixed in the very near fuiur.' 
is expected to l)e $24 at Valley furnace. 

Concerning finished material in gen- 
eial, it is evident that mills in most line.^ 
are gaining steadily in ability to make 
early deliveries. Plates are an imptui- 
ant factor in current demand, and ther.» 
is an excellent outlook for future busi- 
ness, which leads some authorities to 
say that minimum has been reached on 
this product. 

The bar iron situation has not 
chan.ged in the Central West. In th-' 
East cutting has continued, and oni; 
elTect is the action of the bolt and nut 
n.a nil fact liters in reduiing their prices. 
In the central territory the leading pro- 
ducer of l»ar iron holds prices without 
change, and it is averred that delivered 
price.s on steel bars are l>e'ng well main- 
tained under the February agreement. 

Turning to the foundry end of the 
trade, the situation as to prices and as t-i 
the attitude of luiyers is considerably 
mixed. There is more competition 'n 
malleable castings and indications are 
that each manufacturer is now a law to 

Conditions abroad at this juncture ar.-^ 
favorable to the maintenance of price.^. 
Inquiry for export material is of larger 
volume. Prices in Great Britain and 
Ger-nany tend upward, with an increas- 
ing prol)ability that iron from this side 
will l;e needed in the near future. 

A Balloon That May Bo Stoorod. 

This latt St invention iii tlie way of air 
ships is altr.<»cting great attention. The 
most wonderful thing about it is its 
simplicity. It is propelled by a small 
double petroleum motor, similar to that 
used ill automobiles. Ordinary coal gas 
can lak the place of hydrogen for the 
purpose of filling ihc ball.ion, as only an 
hour is required for this work with gas, 
whereas hydrogen takes a day. Thi.-s

The Kentucky court of appeals has de-

eration, rendering a decision as soon as 
possible after the hearing. 

The question of extending the pneu-

The plan to have Champion James J. 
Jeffries light three men in one night in

management of the show has, therefore, ,

I'orelKn markets were tenerally Arm. 
Liverpool closed ^fed higher for the day. 
Continental markets were also higher. Re- 
ceipts at Chicago and the Northwest wen- 
.')3S cars against T.'W cars last week an<l .V.m; 
last vear. There wa.s a very good t ash 
demand »x>th by local millers and for ex- 
ixirt. The seab«>ard reported fairly large 
Uusiness done there for export, prln«>lpally 
in Duluth wheat. The weather throughout 
the winter wh< at belt was cold and wet. 
and Broomhall cabled that the weather in 
(Jreat Brltaui U^ still wintry and the sjirlng 
seasott for agricultural work is getting 
late. He also reported a good demantl for 
\a\ Plata wheat for the continent, l-^stl- 
mated receipts for tomorrow, 4.t cars. 

The corn market ruled very firm all day 
with a heavy trade and olosed >4c higher 
man last night. There was some liquida- 
tion liy longs as well as selling for .short 
accmuit, but the offerings were readily ab- 
s.irbed and undertone to the market all 
ilay was llrm. Foreign markets were 
strong and higher, Liverpool close<l at an 
advance of \tiX over last idght. Country 
offerings were light, while the cash de- 
mand was brisk, and espedaVy for ext>ort. 
We ourselves had liberal cable accept- 
ances on offei^ made abroad last nlgnt. 
The seaboard reported very large business 
done there for export. Foreigners wee 
generally good buyers again of futures 
here and show a di.'<i>osUlwn to buy freely 
now for exiMjrt. Their slocks have run 
ilown to a low pint and they are cmpelled 
to com.' in the market right away. We 
still believe ill higher prU-es. Estimated 
receipts for tomorrow, 34.'> cars. 

«»ats ruled llrm all day with a falily larjre 
trade, anil closed practically unchanged 
from last night. Country offerings were 
IlKht while cash demand was good espe- 
ilally for export. Estimated cars tomor- 
row, Itio. 

Provisions have been most active today, 
and a most IrregiUar market. \V»' have 
had a heavy trade In everything. The 
market started out strong, but dosed 
we.ik. There is no doubt but heavy holders 
have sohl to the panicky shorts and out 
slders. The market is speculatively mad 
and we think tint of all bounds of reason, 
and wou.d advise taking good profits. We 
believe the product will sell higher eventu- 
ally, but that the trailers and eleventh- 
hour bulls will be shaken out. Estimated 
receipts for tomorrow 27,<k») hogs.

Chicago, March 2!*.— The wheat market 
has been very active with prices at one 
time 'SiC over yesterdays close. New-. 
generailv was very favorable. It looks 
to us as there was something more back 
of this demand for cash wheat than .ip- 
p< ars on the surface. Th<- buying is of a 
character indicative of conslderat)le faitn 
on the part of the country in the valu-' 
of their wheat. With the weather condi- 
tions so uncertain, a polithal fogginess 
abroad, a large short interest at home 
and continued cash ln<iuiry from the 

' I'nited Kingdom and the continent, the 

I sellliig does not look logical. 

i In <-orn, :!ih».(khi bus was sold from here 
.ind :W loads taken at New York. The 
weather Is verv favorable to a free mar- 
k«ting, even if the farmers were anxious 

. to dft so and restriction in receipts may be 

i looked for. In the face ol' this condition 
and the enormous cash business men- 
tioned above, we fall to see the consls- 

I tency In selling the speculative article at 

' prices which the demand situation does 

I not warrant. 

Oats have been firm without much feat- 
ure. The discount under May corn keeps 
at ^c. 

The provision market has been an ex- 
citing one with pork at one time up 52V2<'. 
but losing half of It later. There Is an 
uii.loubted reason for this abnormal 
sirength in provisions generally and it 
would seem possible as if we had not yet 
seen the end. T'le market, however, at 
these prices tf» our clients who have been 
fortunate enough to buy lower down 
looks like a mighty attractive proposition 
for securing profits. It will be very re- 
markable If no recessions occur which 
will a. low of re-lnstatements of lines on 
which profits have been secureil on ad- 
vances as radical as this week's provision 
market has shown.

New York, March 29.— There was an act- 
ive demand for stocks at the opening of 
the market, which lifted prices In the ma- 
jority of cases to a higher level. The vio- 
lent break In Sugar and ijroflt taking at 
some p<)lnts In the railroad list, however, 
gave an Irngular appearance to the mar- 
ket. Sugar dropped to par. a fall of 5\4 on 
the opening sales, and rallied only a point. 
Southern i'acific was most affected by 
profit taking, showing a loss of nearly a 
point. Stocks of low priced and reorgan- 
ized roads were In good demand and Ches- 
apeake & Ohio, Cleveland, Cincinnati. Chi- 
cago & St. Louis, Kansas & Texas. North- 
ern and I'nion Pacific advanced VulW- 
The pressure against Sugar acted as a 
drag on the market. This sto<>k bounded 
up to 101^4 but later a raid forced It down 
to 98',4. The general list then ran oft 
sharply. Declines reached \(n2. points in 
a number of the specialties and In a few 
of the railroads. The activity of the mar- 
ket quickly fell off at the decline. 

Prices gave way rapidly all around in 
the second hour, declines from the top ex- 
ceeding over a point In many active rail- 
ways and exceeding that In the indus- 
trials. Sugar was thrown over in large 
blocks and there were heavy offerings of 
People's Gas and the tractions. A rally 
of over a point In Sugar just before noon 
caused a firmer tone. The bonds market 
was higher. 

The bears made a raid on Tobacco and 
the local traction stocks In the last hour, 
forcing them down 2^4 points below the 
top level and uncovering stop loss orders. 
The whole market reacted in >«ympathy 
with declines In some of the specialties 
and a few of the railroads reaching a point 
or over. Pittsburg. Cincinnati, Chicago & 
St. Louis lost practically all of Its rise. 
Tobacco rallied I'i and steadied the mar- 
ket nd prices began to rettace their course 
to a higher plane. The closing was quiet 
and steady at mixed net changs.

Washington, March 29.— Secretary of 
Agriculture Wilson said today that he 
had no official Information that Turkey 
has prohibited the importation of Ameri- 
can pork. If any steps were taken in 
the matter by thl.s government, he said, 
the state department would conduct the 

"If it has bfen decided to bar out all 
pork," said the secretary, "there can he 
no cause for complaint, but if American 
pork is discriminated against we will 
have good cause to protest, as there can 
be no valid reason for excliidin.g it as it 
is the be.«t in the world. It Is probable 
that the action of the porte wis taken 
on religious grounds, as the reliarion of 
the Turks prohibits them from eating 

Mr. Ori.scom acted in his volition in 
lodging this protest, for the state de- 
partment has not yet been informed of 
the prohibition of the Turkish govern- 
ment. It may be stated, however, that 
his action is thoroughly commended by 
the officials, and he will be supported -- 
the utmost in his protest. "While it can- 
not be so stated officially, no doubt is 
entertained here that the action of the 
Turkish government Is directly attribut- 
able to the secret influence of some con- 
tinental powers, whose position in re- 
sistance to the demands of the TTnited 
States for the admission of American 
meat products might be strengthened

The following Interesting rule for grad- 
ing potatoes Is given by M. G. Kalns of 
the department of agriculture. Washing- 
ton, and will doubtless prove of value to 
many housekeepers: 

"The housewife well knows that, as a 
rule the more starch there Is In a potato 
the quicker It will cook, the more it will 
expand in cooking, the moif mealy it will 
be and the better It will taste. And by no 
method of preparing the potato are the.<!e 
facts so strongly emphasized as in bak- 
ing. When potatoes are wanted for this 
urpose the true cook just can't help pick 
the smoothest tubers that she car. 
Ing also to have them of uniform 
size arid weight. She passes by all the 
ged, the irregular ones 
_ that they will not cook 
irregularity In cooking is 
not so much due to the shape as to the 
smaller quantity of starch that thty con- 

"Among potatoes of the same size an-l 
development and even of the same va- 
riety grown In one field there may yet be 
a marked difference In their starch con- 
tent and consequently In their value for 
baking. Those best adapted for this pur- 
pose, however, may be readily separated 
from the others. After a quantity of ap- 
parently desirable tubers have been se- 
lected from the general pile, they may be 
thrown Into a pickle brine of medium 
strength, in which the heavier ones will 
sink. Those that float may then be re-

Tostimony on Publishing Company's 
Application For Dissolution. 

New York, March 2;».— A further hear- 
ing in the case before Referee Francis 
Cantlne. in the application of Harper & 
Bros., for a voluntary dissolution of their 
business, was held today. Henry S. Har- 
per, one of the directors of the company 
and treasurer of the corporation, said 
that in the last year of operations under 
the company there had been a pnnit 
above operating expenses, but not enough 
to pay interest on debts. The company 
had to continue to spend money for ad- 
ditional machinery, electrotype plates and 
the like, and the debts increased e\ery 

The as.sets of the company were some- 
thing over $5,000,000 In electrotype plates, 
toc.'.s. tvpe, drawings, and other things, 
and he "did not believe that anything like 
this amount could be got for them in an 
open sale, much of the value being in 
"good will" and depending upon the sale 
of the plants in their entirety. 

Ralph P. Prime appeared for a number of 
authors. He said none of them was antag- 
onistic to the Harper interests; they sim- 
ply came to learn what would become of 
rovaltv and other contracts between au- 
thors and the Harper concern. He said 
that he and those he represented, would 
oppose the e.sumptton by any new com- 
pany of such contracts. 

Calcutta, March 29.— In the course of

year wa,s £8,0«0,otK) to £10,000,000. He added 
"that the loss to the cotton crop was ^7, 
WW.OOO. While the oil seed crop, usually 
coverning acres, was non-exlstenl 
outside of Bengal and the Northwest 
provinces. The loss to cultivators in Bom- 
bav alone. In food crops, was £]5,000.0tJO 
and In cotton £4,000,000.

New York. March 29.— The grand jury

I was having my lesson in Hlndoo- 
iRtanee from my high-caste munshi, 
whom 1 employed on first arriving in 
India, who dilated with great bitterness 
on the arrogance of Europeans. Pres- 
ently, wishing to give some orders to my 
low-caste sweepers about my dogs, I 
ased the munshi to interpret for mc. 
and among other things to hand the 
sweeper 2 rupees, and to give my direc- 
tions as to certain purchases, says a 
writer in Chambers' Journal. Instead of 
placing the money in the man's hand, 
tlie munshi threw it on the ground, and 
the sweeper quite contentedly gathered 
up the coins, .saluted respectfully, and 
withdrew. I asked the munshi how it 
was that he, whn resented the arrogance 
of Europeans so much, was so insulting 
in his behavior to the poor sweeper, and 
he explained that the latter quite under- 
stood their respective positions and did 
not expect a high-caste man to run any 
risk of touching him, well knowing the 
penalty of fine and troublesome purifica- 
tion which would be thereby entailed.

The most Important laundry workers in 
the world are the women employed in the 
silk conditioning houses. They wash, boll, 
bleach, rinse and dry, but instead of iron- 
ing, they weigh and reweigh the pieces 
with the most minute exactness, and the 
values comprehended in each separate 
operation amount to thousands of dollars. 
The doer-up of linen, dimity and cotton 
may become an expert In her line after a 
couple of years' practice and no particu- 
lar education, but It takes the silk boiler- 
on treble that time to attain mastery of 
her profession, says the New York Sun. 
The conditioners deal only with the raw 
silk as it comes from the cocoons, a lilmy, 
deceptive substance to work with. 

"It took me a lifetime to learn this busi- 
ness," said a woman assayer. "It's thir- 
teen years since I started in business and 
I've been conditioning all that time. My 
father and grandfather were condltioner». 
Tliev learned silk In the old country. 

"l" took up silk conditioning because it 
pavs better than stenography, and I had 
the right feel of the fingers," said another 
off. "No matter how Intelligent a girl is 
if the silk sticks to her fingers she's a 
failure, but I found out quite accidenUlly, 
after 1 had .settled on being a secretary, 
that I was a born silk worker. Women 
having the right knack with silk can 
alwavs make good money, and the siik 
Indus'try is one of the lines of work in 
which women are absolutely Indispen- 
sable. For instance, only women are em- 
ploved in the warp room of any silk man- 
ufaVtorv and this preparing of the length- 
wise thread for the loom is most impor- 
tant and a department enabling the indus- 
trious worker to make $2.'> a week. Men 
are excellent weavers, good foremen and 
weighers, but when it comes to direct 
handling of the raw filaments they yield 
the palm. You mav have seen very smart 
and intelligent people try to make the slip 
knot In tatting and fall, and some such 
inexnllcable sleight of hand is requisite 
for the worker of raw silk. 

"Now, in silk conditioning or assaying 
not only this proper feel of the fingers is 
needed, but the proper judgment and nice- 
ty of calculation. If I let my drying silk 
scorch, lor instance, or if I don't boil 
the gum out of it thoroughly, and if I 
err even so much as a gramme in com- 
puting mv weights, there's a peck of 
trouble. The value of the whole bale ot 
silk is reckoned from the conditioned sam- 
ple, and the raw silk thai travels all the 
way from India, China or Japan is wortli 
something." , . , 

A profe.ssor who was never graduated 
from anv cgollege is in charge of the raw 
silk conditioning where the women work, 
a man who knows every trick ever prac- 
ticed by .silk growers since time was anu 
to whom maniifacturers and importers ati- 
peal with their perplexities. But this di- 
rector leaves the actual work of discover- 
ing these admixtures to his lieutenants. 

Before the hanks of yellow and white 
raw silk are plumped into the boilers they 
are subjected to the dessicating apparatus 
to determine the exact percentage of mois- 
ture absorbed by the silk since the worms 

spun it. Silk, like all textile fibers, con- 
tains a certain degree of moisture, but a 

bale of silk is capable of holding from l.> 
to 25 per cent of water without showing a 
sign of it. The Oriental silk farmers al- 
wavs start to reel their silk from the co- 
coons in the beginning of the rainy season. 
The Importers and manufacturers do not 
relish paying for water at raw silk rates 

hence the conditioning houses. After the 

moisture has been thoroughly expressed 
from the hanks of sUk, they are put into 

little white bags and boiled twice in a 
bath of lulling soap suds, rinsed, dried by 

hot air again and then put through the 

other tests. The scene is quite domestic 

as the women manipulate the dozens of 

samples, weighing them with the accu- 
racy that apothecaries use in weighing 

out critical drugs and managing every 

operation with extreme neatness because 

of the costiv nature of the goods. 
The cocoons are put into water prepara- 

torv to reeling the silk off. A brush sonu- 

thiiig like a whisk, or a sink broom, is 

used to catch the end of the thread for 

the reeling. This reeling is ordinarily done 

in the household of the silk farmer, and 
anything gummy that can be put into the 

water for the cocoons to soak up means 

so much gain for his l>oeket and so much 

damage to the purity of the silk. Rice 

water is admirable for this, that 

being cheap in Japan and. easy to gel. 

DLssolved tin is a good thing also, and 

there are tin mines in plenty in the moun- 
tain districts ot China; soap, sugar, any 

kind of grease or oilv vegetable matter 

will answer, and the Orientals are versed 

iji a varietv of expedients for overwelgli- , 

ting that we are unable to guess at. The 

mo^l tactful manufacturer cannot weave 

rich, pliant silk from filaments that have 

been tampered with. The native silkjness 

is marred bv the process necessary to ab- 
stract the foreign substance. These ex- 
quisitely delicate silken fa^rl'"s niade on 

the hand looms of Europe and the Orient 

are made from silk wound oft the cocoon 

while the worm is still alive. Instead of 

tt«; having been killed by roasting, as is 

the common practice. The roasted cocoon 

Rives off its silk more readily. The reeling 

is facilitated, but the difference in the 

texture of silk obtained from a live co- 
coon and that obtained from a dead one 

is plain .to an expert. He can detect It just 

as a game connoisseur can tell from tht 

taste of the bird whether It was scalded 

in order to make the feathers come off 

easily or picked dry. 
"The certain proportion of native gum 

existent in the cocoon." said the condi- 
tioner, "plavs into the tricksters hands 

and our tiuslness Is to detect the true from 

the false and put the standard of any 

particular bale just where it *>e'0"Sf. 

•Then the silk dealers know .lUst what 

grade of raw stuff they have to deal with. 

the throwers and dyers have a standard 

to go bv. and the manufacturers know 

definitely what grade of good.s it is possi- 
ble to make from any certain lot of hanks 

ana won't be trying blindly, as It were, 

to fashion a silk purse of a sow s ear. 

"Sometimes we have to make decomposi- 
tions of manufactured silks to discover 

what has Interfered with their perfection. 

Our professor can tell the moment he get.s 

the silk in his hands pretty nearly, what 

the trouble was, but it is assayed accu-

Edward L. MoKee. vice president of 
the Indiana National bank, told today 
the story of the wanderings of a letter 
which has traveled for twenty-seven 
years, and promises to continue the 
itinerary so long as its senders live, says 
the New York World, 

One is Mr. McKee. the other is Will- 
iam Fenton, vice president of t.lie Bank 
of the Republic in Chicago. 

Twenty-seven years ago the men came 
to Indianapolis from Madison and se- 
cured positions in a shoe store. Every 
Madisonian that visited the city would 
slop la see the young men and give thein 
the news, so when a Mr. Friedersdorff 
built a home every one from Madison 
would stop at the store and say: 
"FreidersdorfC is building himself a new 

One day Fenton. sitting five feet from 
McKee, wrote: "Friedersdorff is build- 
ing a handsome new home." He put the 
letter in an envelope and mailed it to 
McKee. He got the letter and remailed 
it to Fenton. 

Thus the letter in 1873 l>egan its pil- 
grimage. For many weeks it passed 
l)ackward and forward through the In- 
dianapolis postofflce. neither Fenton 
nor McKee saying a word about it. 

McKee said today: "I have not seen 
it for a year. Elaiiy in 1899 I directed it 
to Fenton at St. Peter.=iburg. with in- 
structions if not called for in ten days 
return to W. B. Fenton. Chicago. 111. 

The letter must have traveled hun- 
dreds of thousands of miles. AftCr it 
had passed through the Indianapolis 
postofflce for a long time, Mr. Fenton 
moved to Chicago. Soon after his ar- 
rival he found the letter awaiting him 
at his office. He mailed it to "Edward 
L. McKee. Bombay. India." indorsing on 
the envelope a request thai if "Mr. Mc- 
Kee had left Bombay to remail the letter 
to Mr. McKee at Indianapolis." 

The letter came in due time to McKee. 
v.ho directed it to "W. F. Fenton, Cape 
Town. South Africa." 

After that the letter went to Ireland. 
China. Japan. Australia, South America, 
Russia — everywhere. It is up t<i "Mc-

The Superior Telegram is much worked 
up over the fact that the •'lumberjacks" 
now returning from the woods aft.-r 
their winter's work prefer to come to 
Duluth and spend their money here In- 
stead -of Roing to Superior. The Tele- 
gram thinks it is a problem that needs 
elucidation and wants the matter in- 
vestigated. It says: 
i "The merchants of Superior are notii.g 
the absence of the 'lumberjack' from 
the city at this seasonable time, and 
they are noticing the great throngs of 
lumber laborers who crowd the streets 
of Duluth. Why this is thus is a con- 
siderable concern to Superior. Perhaps 
Superior treated these knights of the 
pine woods very inhospitably in the past, 
.^ome things to this effect are alleged. 
Perhaps Superior has a bad reputation 
among these gentlemen for too strict 
lx)li<inB and alleged Infringement on 
their rights as citizens. We do not say 
this is so. Perhaps Duluth has some 
special attraction for these spring tour- 
ists. Perhaps the checks arc made pay- 
;:ble in Duluth. Well, whatever the 
leaKons. the fact remains that a much 
larger number of spring guests nr<' 
staying in Duluth than in Superior. 
What can be done about it? We do not 
know. Will the council consider this 
problem? Can President Twohy offer a 

If the Telegram will make a little in- 
vestigation on its own account. Instead 
of depending on the slow-moving city 
council, and send some of Us brl^^ht 
young men to talk with the "lumber- 
jacks," it will quickly di.^cover the rea- 
son of the state of affairs that agitates 
it. They come to Duluth because it is 
the largest city and has all the attrac- 
tions of a city that they seek after 
when they come from the woods back 
to civilization. Even if their checks were 
payable in Superior, they would come 
to Duluth, knowing that the enterpris- 
ing merchants here would cash their 
checks and gave tiiem the trouble of 
going across the bay. When Superior 
grows a little and assumes a more 
metropolitan aspect, the "lumberjacks" 
may pay it a spring visit, but in the 
meantime they will stick to Duluth aiid 
the big show and not waste their time 
and money on the little side-shows.

Rumors come .from 
.Switzerland that the 
arbitration commit 
sion that has had the 
Delagoa bay railroad 
case under consideration since ISOO has 
reached a decision and has as.sessed dam- 
ages against the Portuguese government 
amounting to $7,0<IO,OC1J. Previous to lj.:iii 
a railroad company was formed for the 
purpose of building a railroad from I..0- 
renzo Maniues. on Delagoa bay, to a 
point t-n the Transvaal border. At this 
jjolnt connections were to be made with 
the railroad Kadln? thenco to Pretoria. 
The company, which obtained the grant 
from I'ortugal, wa.s headed by an Ameri- 
can, but the needed capital was raised \n 
Ijondon. After a long delay and an al- 
leged failure to construct thi' railroad, 
the Portuguese government deelared the 
company's franchise forfeited. The gov- 
ernment itsilf built the railroad and 
since its completion has been operating 
it. Growing out of this seizure of the grant 
arose the claims uiion whicli tlie arliitra- 
tion commission has just passed. In IS'.tO 
the British government, after some diplo- 
matic controversy, asked the Portuguese 
government if it would be willing to arbi- 
trate the. case. Portugal replied that it 
would r.rbitra'ii.' the «|iiesiion of damages,

1S22, after the Portuguese liad diseovered 
the bay and claimed the adjacent land as 
a Portuguese posses.sion, the British ini- 
deitook to occupy it. The British claim 
to the bay and the surrounding terrlti;;y 
was arbitrated in tlie ■7i'.-< by the presideiit 
of the French rti)ublie, and tlie I'or.ugiu;; e 
claim was tally I'onlirmod. American sym-

privilege and vehe- . '".. s.,*"'"*""', 
mently denied the .siatement published .n 
the Washington Star of Friday. March 
23, and credited to a Republican member 
of the house, who voted for the Porlo 
Rican tariff bill, that "the deal wid be 
carried out" and that "the possible un- 
popularity of the tariff was balanced 
against the certainty of money to use in 
the campaign, an.] the decision was In 
favor of the campaign contribution." 
Mr. Hanna said this statement was "a 
malicious lie. ' Tlie Washington Star, 
which is Republican In politics and an 
earnest supporter of the adminl.slratlon, 
is one of the most reliable newspapers 
published In the Fnited States, and it is

says a Republican member of the house 
made the above statement. Of course. 
the member may have lied. But, If it i3 
a lie as Senator Hanna asserts, why if ! 
not for a substantial contribution to the 
campaign, are the Republ.can leaders 
pushing the I'orto Rican tariff mi-asurv? 
The bill has no supporters outside the 
League of Domestic Produee.-s. As the

Great Britain made an apology to the 
I'nited State.^ for the opening of Consui 
Maerum's mall by its censor, there Is no 
doubt that tm apology was made. The 
meaning of the word apt)logy differs in 
diplomatic circles from what It doi ;.•. in 
unofficial life. The meaning in Amerita 
also differs from what it is in Englani. 
F'rom the American standpoint It was an 
explanation. One who Is in a position to 
know the facts states that when the 
charge was first made by Macrum and 
fao-simi!es of the envelopes were pub- 
lished, it was noticed that the censor who 
opened them had been careful to write 
his initials upon the sticker so that he 
could be easily traced. Lord I'auucefot.- 
voluntarily offered to make an investiga- 
tion, and a few days later camt' lo th"

that the censor had violated his Instruc-

amount of mail matter which passed 
through hi.'< hands. He expressed regret 
at the circumstance and explained the or-

the old adage that "no news Is good news" 
were capabh' of large and general api)ll- 
cation. Preacher Sheldon's idea of what a 
newspaper ought to be would be entitled 
to some respect.

of trouble for the Republican members

SKXATOit #>.4I'*.V ATTITt'OK. 

By his speech in the senate ye.Tterday, 
Senator Davis of this state definitely 
aligned himself with the Republican 
lolonial free traders. Senator Nelson 
has also taken a similar stand and will 
be found voting to the last against any 
tariff between Porto Rico and this 
country. A Washington dispatch says 
that among those who listened to the 
strong and able speech delivereil by 
Senator Davis in favor of free trade 
with Porto Rico was Congressman Mor- 
ris, who recently made a speech In de- 
fense of the measure that js the crown- 
ing e.xhibition of the greed of the pro- 
tected industries. He must have fell 
how pitiably weak and miserably in- 
adequate was his explanation of his 
own vote for the tariff, as he listened to 
the senator's strong protest against so 
flagrant a violation of implied pledges- 
and of the spirit of our institutions. He 
must also have been disturbed in mind 
us he thought of the campaign soon to 
oi)en in this district, as he listened to 
the warning uttered by Senator Davis 
against running counter to the senti- 
ment of the American people and the 
assertion that the people thoroughly 
understand the question and their pro- 
test is not a tfmporary matter. 

Senator Davis has shown qualities of 
true statesmanship by his stand upjn 
this question, and has shown an inde- 
pendence of the malevolent inlluence of 
the trusts as well as of Hanna and the 
White House that endears him to the 
people of Minnesota. The fact that 
Senator Davis' term does not expire un- 
til March 4, 1905, so that he cannot be 
accused of catering to the pojjular sen- 
timent in Minnesota to gain a re-elec- 
tion. He has taken this stand becau.^e 
he believes with the great majority of 
the American people that the Porto 
Ricans are entitled to free trade, that 
the promises made to them when they 
welcomed our troops to the island 
should be fulfilled, and that the proper 
way to raise revenue for the island is 
not by means of a tariff between the 
island and this country.

She was rather young and fair. 
With a wealth of burnished hair 
That was coiled in careless masses round 
her head; 
Others may have been entranced. 
Others may have slyly glanced, 
But he merely took his paper out and

In the car; 
There were sudden swerves, with now and

Heads were swayed this way and that, 
And sometimes the one who sat 
There beside him, as they sped upon 
their way. 
Brushed Ms shoulder with her hair, 
But he didnt know or care — 
He was reading what had happened 
through the day! 

There was one who sat at home. 

And be knew 
She would meet him at the door- 
Happy two: 
^Vhat Were other woman's charms 
While she stood with waiting arms? 
Ah, he loved each raven tress upon her 
head I 
With a true heart and serene 
Ih- rushed in where she was queen- 
But the happiness they had, alasl is 

O, he told her all the truth. 

And he swore 
On the Bible, but she fumed. 

And she tore! 
She had found a burnished hair 
R^ sting on his shoulder ere 
He had stepped across the threshold, 
and today 
He can neither say nor do 
Aught to make her think him true— 
Shun the women and the cars that jolt 
and sway.

A. N. Alcott in the Minneapolis Mirror: 
Page Morris in his recent speech at 
Duluth. in which he tried to justiiy 
himself for voting for the Porto Rican 
tariff bill, made this statement: "The 
<luestion which we must tirsi consider 
Is the. welfare of our own people rather 
than those of Porto Rico." 

What an appeal to American selfish- 
ness this is. And how different Is this 
spirit from the spirit in which we en- 
tered into the Spanish war. Then ihe 
motive was humanity. We i)roclaimc«l 
it aloud. The nations heard it. The 
nations have not forgotten it. But two 
classes of peopie in this country luive. 
First, the twelve trusts which, through 
their presidents, sent their petitions to 
the Fnited States senate for a tariff 
against Porto Rico, ano opposing tree 

Second, the political leaders who mis- 
represent the Republican Jiarty, and 
who are looking to the trusts for cam- 
paign money to carry the next iiresi- 
(Untial election. These men of both 
classes are now valianUy and iiatriotical- 
ly "considering the welfare of our 
own people. " Ought not this disin- to touch our hearts? BuL 
why was not this "welfare of our own 
people' thought of long ago? Why 
was it not thought of before the war 
was commenced? it woidd have saved 
thi;usands of valuable American lives, 
and several hundred millii>ns of American 
money, much sulTer:ng. much disease, 
many tears of American fathers, moth- 
ers, widows and sweethearts. To have 
saved all this would have been in the in- 
terests of the "'welfare of our own peo- 

But sentiments of humanity for Porto 
Ricans ami Cubans then triumphed, and 
we were wliling to undergo national 
istraln, and Incur many losses of all k;nd.< 
in order to deliver these islanders from 
the tyranny of Spain. The "welfare of 
our own people" did not then enter into 
our calculations. But suddenly a few 
patriotic po.iticians remember that we 
really have a people of our own, and that 
they ought to be taken care of a? against 
t^ie Porto Ricans. The Porto Ricans be- 
ing strong, and we lieirig feeble, this is 
a creditable and happy thought. But 
will Page Morris please tell us who the 
Porto Ricans are? Who are they? Where 
do they belong? They do not belong to 
us, of course, because "our own people ' 
are to be protected against them. Whoso 
people are they. Mr. Morris'.' It will not 
do to admit that they are our peoi>ie for 
ihen according to your argument "we 
must lirst <-onsider (their) welfan\'' This 
might require a modltication of that 
l^urto Rican bill in the direction of free 
trade. Mr. Morris, people are 
they? When Gen. made his proc- 
lamation and promise to them of the 
eciuaiities. liberties and privileges of Am- 
erican citizens, which proclamation and 
pr<jmise h.ive never been annulled, re- 
tr.-icted or modified by the government, 
where did it leave these people'.' They re- 
joiced and accepted gladly their practi- 
cal incorjior.-ition into the body of Am- 
erican citizen.s. Mr. J*Inrris, was thfit 
Ijroclamation so much wind? Or did it 
c;irrv with it the sacred honor and 
))llghted faith of these Fnited States? 
And if the latter, what but the baldest 
of demagogueism could i»rompt you 10 
assume that they are not of our people. 
and that we must jirotect *our own peo- 
ple" against them (that is to say, cur in-

Mr. Morris has unwittingly, perhaps, 
advanced an idea of relbf for distressed 
American c.immunities that will result 
in an entirely new principle of legislation 
and management, and in opening up a 
new and vi'.st field to the ingenultv of fut- 
ure legislators. He says: "In my .iiidgment 
it (the bill) was mere liberal and gener- 
ous and effective for immediate relief 
than it would have been by giving Im- 
mediate free trade." 

The new idea suggested here is thi.'-'. 
When any one of our states, or terri- 
tories, get into rinancial straits, from 
business stagnation, destructive cyclones 
or tornadoes, indebtedness, what hot, let 
the governm'-nt of the I'nited States en- 
act a tariff law against its trade with the 
rest of the states, if it be a state, or 
against the states and other territories. 
if It be a territory, and then hand the 
amount thus received hack lo such slate, 
or territory for Its "immediate r-ellef." 
The plan would work ef|ually well, too, 
in the case of cities burdened with un- 1 
bearable Indebtedness. Let the state in 1 
which they are situated enact a reason- 
able stiff tariff law against the trade of 
Ihe city, with other parts of the state 
and with other states, take the proceeds, 
then han.I them back, minus the expense 
of collecting, which would be fair of 
course, for the city's "Immediate relief." 
It would be a plan, in the case of the 
state, or territory, or city depressed in 
finances. Industries, and well-being, that 
would be "liberal, generous and effec- 
tive." \Vhy not extend Pago Morr;s' prin- 
ciple farther than Porto Rico? It Is a 
fresh and great dl.scovery. "In mv judg- 
ment, it (the Porto Rican tariff bill against 
a poor, depressed, industry-paralyzed peo- 
ple) was fore liberal and generous and 
effective for Immediate relief than would 
have been one giving immediate free 
trade." Free trade, then, is not the best 
thing for any one of our states, terri- 
tories, or cities, that hai»pens to be in 
financial and industrial straits. but a 
tariff against their trade, returning to tbe 
amicted, the proceeds, minus the ex- 
penses of collecting, is the thing. Solo- 
mon need not tell us there Is nothing 
that Is brand new. It Is a principle of 
legislation that will probably be ener- 
getically worked over wide fields of dis- 
tress in this country in the future. It is 
■generous and liberal and effective."

The misfortune of this Porto Rican 
business is that It seems to be develop- 
ing, as the hot iron develops and makes 
legible the writing in invisible ink, the 
real jjolicy of a certain class of political 
leaders toward our new possessions, 
which policy Is not that of the gen- 
erosity and humanity with which the 
S'panish-Amerlcan war began, but a poli- 
cy dictated to the selfish money-«ind- 
trade Interests of the country. It does 
not spring from the heart of "the Ameri- 
can people. It misrepresents them. But 
it will be interpreted abroad, and also 
by our islands as representing the mind 
of the American people. If this policy is 
pushed much longer In the national sen- 
ate and house, we may look for some po- 
litical surprises next November. Ameri- 
cans are not going to back up Imperial- 
ism, nor the policy of fleecing semi-eivl- 
lized, helpless peoples, in the Interests of 
trade combinations at home. This spirit 
is no longer that of the generous gift of 
blood, and the sacrifice of hundreds of 
mil: Ions of money, on behalf of oopressed 
peoples, but the greedy spirit of trusts, 
and the Intrlgulne. bargaining spirit of 
politicians by profession. What has now 
become of the aforetime generous flame?

that there will ho a large attendance at 
the meeting next Tuesday evening. The

manner in which tht members are tak-

association will bo prominent in all of 
its proceedings, the .scientific part will 
not be neglected by any means, espe- 
cially the sciences that can be applied 
locally, such as the botany and geology 
of this section. Perhai>s more public- 
interest will attach, however, to the

Yesterday's meeting was pronounced 
an unciualilied success and was one of 
the attended in the history of the 
mission iirganizations of the Duluth 
presbytery. During the aftern:)on se.-^- 
sion several inters sUng papers on mis- 
sion work were read, among which was 
one by Mrs. R. A. Montgomery on the 
medit-al wurk of missions throujjhout 
the world. Mrs. Robert Pelham read 
a paper on ttie freedmen, in which the 
wjrk of the Presbyterian Missionary

Southern negroes was explained in a very 
comprehensive maniit i-. This paper also 
gave a historical sketch of freedmen 
missions and their benefit to the Chris- 
tian world. 

Mrs. .J. A. Waugh and Mrs. C. S. 
Pifrce. treasurers of the society, made 
their reports during the afternoon ses- 
sion, whitti, like those made during the 
mcrning session, showed the movement 
to be in excellent standing financially. 

Mrs. W. J. McCabe was selected to 
attend the meeting of the Northwestern 
board of missions to be held at Evans- 
ton. 111. 


Donald MacLeod Wins Anderson 
Modal— Stocking Leads In Points. 

The curling season is over and tlie clu'o 
has been cU)sed until next winter. H has 
been the most plea.=ant and the most act- 
ive winter the Duluth Curling club has 

ever had and it has brought a large niim- 
bor of players who bid fair to become 
very profit lent. The members of the club 
are becoming better curlers every year 
and it will not be very lung before Dululh 
can boast of some of tlie best curlers in 
the country. Thfre was more Individual 
practice this winter than ever before and 
that is what makes good curlers. The In- 
terest in the game which has been awak- 
ened in the city will increase and next 
year will certainly see a much larger niun 
ber of active curlers. 

"The final game of the season was played 
last eveninK and it was the dccidbiK jn'mt 
for the Anderson medal. Donald Mae- 
Leod's rink defeated C. F. Macdnnald's 
and won the prize. The Ice was very wet 
and it was a slugging match rather thai, 
scientific curling. The score was as fol-

Effort to Orfanize Temporarily 
Blocked By Tu^; Firemen. 

At a meeting in the Kalamazoo hall 
last evening an effort was made to or- 
ganize a local union of the International 
Seamen's Union of America, but the or- 
ganization failed temporarily owing to 
the fact that the tug firemen refused to 
go into any organization other than 
that of their craft. They desired a sep- 
arate organlzati«»n for tug firemen, but 
the meeting was called for the purpose 
of forming a union for all seamen. An- 
other meeting will be held shortly, when 
the new organizati m will be put through 
and the firemen lan join later if de-

Annual Meetinf and Eleotion of Of- 
ficers Held. 

Last evening the annual meeting of 
the Duluth Produce and Fruit exihang-^ 
was held at the office in the New Jer- 
.«ey building. The election of officers re- 
sulted as follows: Pre;^ident, K. M. Fer- 
guson, of the Knudsen-Ferguson Fruit 
company* first vice president. E. A. 
Tessrnan," of W. H. Carpenter & Co.; 
second vice president, C. Sanders, of 
Sanders & Co.; treasurer, C. E. Peaslee. 
of the Victor company; secretary, R. P. 
Hay. of the Fitz.'nmmons-Derrig com- 
pany; assistant secretary, William L. 
McLennan, of the American Exchange 

The condition of the exchange was 
reported as being very satisfactory and 
it has been a prosperous year. The 
members individually reported a good 
year for business with collections go h1 
both in the city and country and they 
look for as good if not a better year 
than the ;)ast. More business is ex- 
fiected from the grocors for those who 
do liusiness with the cotmtry direct will 
have to take out licenses under the 
C.rindeland law and this they are not 
apt to want to do. 

It was decided that after this month 
no gofids will be delivered free to Lake- 
side and West Duluth. 



Tomorrow evening and Saturday 
afternocn Blanche Walsh and MelbouriiC 
MacDowell will be .seen at the Lyceum 
ir. Sardou's famous pla\, "Cleopatra. ' 
and on Saturday evening in "Fedora. " 
i;Iso by Sardou. This famous Queen of 
Egypt has for centuries presented an 
altogether unique figure in the minds of 
those cultivated enough to care for his- 
tirical personages. From the first ac; 
on to the very last, including !he great 
siorm episode, a series of iharmii.g 
Egyptian pictures will be presented. Th>- 
rcprodouticn of the famous "Cleoiiatra 
Marge." with Its accompaniment of 
music, singing crowds of swayintr, ador- 
ing figure.^, armed Roman soldiers and 
r-riiliant ndcrod surroundings makes a 
picture r?rely witnessed on the stage. 
Tho .?to!ni scene in the fifth act is said 
to be one of th- most thrilling examples 
of reason known to the conr-^mporary 

Owing to the extreme length of the 
stupendous production of "Cleopatia" 
th< curtain will rise at 8 and 2 p. m. 

Leon Herrmann, the third < f that 
famous family to attain prominence as a 
magician, will appear at the Lyceum 
Monday next. This will l>e the first ap- 
1 caranle in this city of Leon, the latest 
and last of the Herrmanns, and the only 
member of that famou.« family now be- 
fore the public. As his predecessors be- 
f. re him a:«sumed the title of "Herrmann 
the ilreat." and gave that title a trade- 
mark of value, so has Leon assumed the 
same title, and i)lanted it more firmly in 
the affections of theater-goers, as repre- 
.•■enting the premier magical entertainei 
of the world. The critics have said that 
not only is Lecn entitled to that ai>pella- 
ticn. but he should be called th'/ 
e.m Hermann of th^ni all. No more

has been seen in this country.

Plan of St. Luke's HospHal 

lo 6o to Contractors 

Next Week. 


Authorities Decide to Pro- 
ceed at Once— To Be 
Handsome Buiiding. 

The new St. Luke's hospital building 
is to be erected this year. The architects 
have been directed to prepare the plans 
for submission to contractors and they 
will be given out for figures some day 
next week. It will take some days 
thereafter to get figures and then the 
contract will be let and work will pro- 
ceed. The building fund of the hospi- 
tal has reached such proportions that 
immediate construt tion can be pro- 
ceeded with and the authorities of the 
hospital are very anxious to get Into 
the new building as soon as possible 
for the additional room and better 
eiiulpment is needed. 

The new building will be part of what 
will eventually be a very large struc- 
ture extending from the alley at the 
present site at Fourth street and Sec- 
ond avenue east up to the street. The 
part that will be built now is that on 
the alley and It will have frontage of 
about fifty feet on the avenue. i; wiii 
be four stories in height with a base- 
ment that is almost a fio^r In itseif. 

This building will be built of brick 
and st<mc and will Ite of fireproof c-on- 
structlon throughout. The exterior 
will h<d substantial in appearance, but 
simple with little ornamentation. The 
interior will be finely finished and the 
appointments will be complete and 
modern in every way. When the build- 
ing is completed St. Luke's hospital 
will be second to none. 

Talk of Prosecuting. 

It is rep.trted over at Superior that 
about thirty votes were illegally cast in 
one ward in the recent mayoralty con- 
test and that steps are being taken t' 
prosecute the iiersons. Attorneys are 
said to be in charge of the matter. The 
persons arc said lo have signed fraudu- 
lent affidavits. In Wisconsin the pri- 
maries are under the control of the city 
to a certain extent. The chairman of 
the precincts must make returns to the 
{ ity clerk. This gives opportunity for 
the inspection of the conduct of the 
pi Imai ies. 


Cleveland Cliffs Buys Big

Dunnstaffnaie When Last Heard 
From Was In Distress. 

Philadelphia, March 29.— Fear.? are ex- 
pressed here regarding the safety of the 
British four-masted bark Dunnstaff- 
nage. Capt. D. F. Forbes, which sailed 
from this city Feb. 9 for Japan with a 
t argo of refined oil in cases. The last 
heard of the Dunnstaflfnage was the in- 
fi.rmation that on March 6 she had col- 
lided with and sunk the British steamer 
Verona, just north of the After 
the collision Capt. Forbes reported to the 
captain of the German steamship Per- 
nambuco, wiilch rescued the Verona's 
irew. that he would endeavor to rea< h 
HarI>adoe.=. At that time the Dainnstaft- 
nage's fore was full of water, and it Is 
thought her collision bulkhead, all that 
kept her afloat, might have collapsed 
and that she sank with her crew of 
thirty men. The vessel and cargo are 
valued in excess of $300,000, and both are 
covered by insurance.

New York. March 29.— The National

this city, with the following officers: 
President, Miss Lillle Dcvereux Blake;

garet M. Parsons. Michigan; correspond- 
ing secretary, Mrs. Margaret Holmes 
Bates, New Y^ork; treasurer, Mrs. Vic- 
toria Cjukllng Whitney, Missouri. 

There are lo be six important com- 
mittees, and the league will hold -4x1 an- 
nual convention in Washington, the date 
to be settled upon latei". 

Ikiis is the platform adopted: 

"The object of this league is to obtain 
for wamen equality of legal civil and 
industrial rights Through action by the 
national con.gress and the state legisli- 
tures. In laboring for this object it is 
hoped to unite many women who believe 
in better conditions for their sex in a 
bond which shall secure effective co- 
operation for any reform in which all 
are Interested. 

"TLie necessity for such an associated 
effort Is obvious when political conditions 
are considered. In thirty-scven states 
a married mother has no right to hvi- 
children. In sixteen states a wife ha= 
no right to her own earnings outside of 
the home. In eight slates a woman has 
no right to her own property after mar- 
riage. In seven states there is no law 
I impelling a man to support his family. 
In all states there is a discrimination 
against women in the matter of employ- 
ment and compensation. 

"These are only a few of the evils 
under which women r-utrer. and which 
united and vigorous action could rem- 
edy. All women who believe in the up- 
lifting of their sex, and all generou."- 
hearted men. are addres.sed in earnest 
appeal to give name, inlluence and 
financial aid to an cnceavor to brine 
about improved conditions and thu.s 
make t'ne lot cf mi! lions of women 
happifr and more honorable."

Selection of Jurymen For the 

Present Year Is Under 



Charge Made By St. Paul 

Firm Against Assistant City 

Attorney Holmes. 

The selection of a '^OO" for the county 
of St. Louis is in progress today. This 
is not a society item, however, for tho 
400 to be .selected is not necessarily- t'. 
)>e composed of the creme de creme of 
the upper circles of Duluth society. Yet 
they are supposed to be good and sul)- 
stantial citizenp. for th' y will be called 
upon during the year to handle matttcs 
of great importance and Involving lar.'^o 
sums <if money, valuable property, and 
even the liberty and perhaps the lives )f 
men and women. 

The work of selecting this list of im- 
portant functionaries i.s being done ii'. 
the court house by Judge Cant. County 
Auditor Haiden and several uf the depu- 
ty clerks of district court. The list is 
i-oming out of the pjll li.sts and t'ne 
<ity and range directories, and when it 
is completed it will form the fund from 
which the grand and petit jurie.s in the 
district court for the next year will be 
drawn. The lucky ones will not be in- 
formed of the honor that has been con- 
ferred upon them until they are drawn 
for duty at some term of district court, 
when they will be waited upon by depu- 
ty sheriffs and notified that Iheii' prts- 
ence will be reouired at the district 
court, where as grand jurors they will 
look into matters touching tCne peace and 
dignity of the state of Minne.sota. and 
where, as petit jurors they will try crim- 
inals indicted by the grand jury, as well 
as civil matters submitted to them. 

The law provides that this list shall be 
drawn during March in each year, and 
when it is completed the names are 
placed in a box. Whenever a term of 
cjurt is approaching, twenty-fuui- 
names a?e drawn forlfi to form a grand 
jury and forty-six names are drawn f )r 
the petit juries. If these do not sutllce, 
special venires are drawn. The origin '.1 
venire is called the venire facies. When 
a citizen is drawn and i^erves, his natiie 
is out of the box. and he is not subje< t 
to jury duty again during the year. 


Procsfdincs Brought Igainst J. D. 
Holmes^ By^St. Paul Firm. 

Prot eeding.^ against Assi.stant City 
Attorney J. D. Holmes for contempt "f 
court have been instituted by Lanplier, 
Finch & Skinner, creditors of J )gep)i 

Burns, for whom Mr. Ht)lmes once acted 
as assignee. The court is asked to pun- 
ish Holmes for contempt of court be- 
cause he failed-to obey its order to turn 
over to the firm $373.80, the amount i-f 
its judgment against r;«rn.>«. 

Burns made an assignment to Holmes 
a couple of years ago. and when th<> 
firm sued him it garnisheed H )lmeR, 
claiming that the insolvency proceedings 
were Irregular because Holmes was not 
a property owner, as the law provides. 
The court held that Homes was not a 
proper per.'^on tt) act as assignee 
he was not a free-holder, and in its 
findings it directed him to turn over t > 
the firm the amount of its judgment. 
He has failed to do so, hence the reouest 
that he be punished for conteinpt if 

Mr. Holmes has begun counter pro- 
ceedings to have the court strike out 
from its findings of fact and conclusions 
of law that part ndating to the order 
for him to pay over the money. He 
claims that it no place there, that 
the issue in the case was only the valid- 
ity of the a.ssignment, and that he did 
not know there was an order to pay until 
the contempt pmeeedings were begun.

An important Point Raised By 

the Attorneys of Banicer 


Chicago, March 29. — Upon the deci- 
sion of Judge Dunne. In regard to the 
contention of the attorneys of former 
Hanker E. S. Dreyer, now under a 
penitt-ntiary sentence for the einbezzle- 
ment of SlHCOOo of the funds of the 
West Park board, who are trying to se- 
cure his release (ui a writ of habeas 
corpus, may depend the liberty of every 
convict sent to Joliet since 189.'). 

Dreyer's attorneys claim that the 
mittimus in their client's case, which 
provided that he should be <'onnned un- 
til released by the state board of par- 
dons was in error, in that the parole 
law of 189.") provided that the state board 
of pardons had no authority to release, 
but to only recommend such action to 
the governor, which constituted an er- 
ror sufficient to warrant his release. 
l,>reyer's attorneys have also lecom- 
mended the technical point that Dreyer 
had been twice placed in jeopardy by 
the dismissal of the jury in a former 
trial before a decision had been reached. 

When Attorney Mayer finished his ar- 
gument today. Judge Dunne asked the 
.-state's attorney if the inittimi wcte 
printed forms. I'pon receiving the re- 
jdy that all pri.soners were sent to Joliet 
upon this foiin iif mittimus, the court 
rejoined: "If Mr. Mayer's contention 
is true, there will not be many men 
fiom Cook county left in Joliet."

"Is It possible for a man to learn to play 
I)okerV" was asked of a veteran sport the 
other day, says the Washington Post. 

"Of course It Is," he snorted. "That Is. it 
is ixissilile for some people. The man with 
^^porting bloiMi in his veins and without too 
much reward for ethics in his composition 
(an learn to play poker. This talk about 
everything ln-lng In the cards .vou hold Is 
all rot. I have seen a man lay down three 
aces to a pair of deuces, and that cer- 
i::inl.v demonstrates that there is more in 
playing poker than the value of the hand. 
Ot course .such a thing as that would not 
!>•' possible where the limit was al)i)ut the 
size of the iM)t, but then a good poker pla.\- 
er steers clear of any such sketches as 
that. It pilaces the .si)ort on the same level 
with the sucker, and there is no chance lor 
a man to display his skill or knowledge of 
the game. 

"It Is easy enoush to spot a sucker, ' h • 
continued. "He can come into the game 
with as much of a swagger as he can 
muster, but he will show his weakness in- 
side of ten minutes, and then he will have 
more trouhle on his hands than he can 
take care of in a year. He Is slow about 
getting his ante to the center of the tal)le. 
and if the cards run against him he is al- 
ways cursing his luck and making things 
genera.'ly un|)leasant for the pla>ers. If 
he gets a good hand he crows over his 
winnings until tin- others get sore. You 
can always tell whether he has a good 
hand or not, for he has never learned the 
value of self control ana '.us exultation is 
always evident. He never has tho slightest 
iiU.i uf the percentage he stands of win- 
ning, and is always coming in on short 
pairs. That is where he loses. He can't 
wait for fortune to come to him. and he 
is always trying to 'bull his luck.' He wiJI 
chip away more mone.v in two liours than 
a good player would in two days. 

"Watch the contrast between the sucker 
and the trained si)ort. The latter comes 
and sits down to the table «|Uietly and 
without any fuss. He 'skins' his cards 
carefull.v. and keeps an eye on every play 
around the board. No one ever has to tell 
him to ante, and he never holds a 'post 
mortem' to see what he might have got. He 
may not make u move for half an hour, 
but when he gets on a pla.v he will break 
some one's heart, either on a bluff or with 
a hand that the devil himself could not 

"It is right to cheat? Well, you are get- 
ting too personal. I won't admit that 
I would do such a thing, but if there is any 
crooked work going on I am going to have 
m.v share of the procee<ls or know the rea- 
son why. This talk about 'a gentlemen's 
game' is all .i dream. If a man plays poker 
;md keeps at he is going to be a part.v to 
something crooked, whether he plays at a 
fashionable did) or in a wine room .it ilie 
back of a saloon. I'""or my own i)art J 
prefer to l)Iay in a hard game, wheie some- 
thing is liable to be pulled off. for I know 
that I have to look out for myself. Hu- 
manity is reduced to a moral level when It 
comes to gambling, and while some of 
these silk stockings may piate of their 
honor and all that it Is only their fear of 
being found out that keeps them from l)u- 
ing as crooked as any 'longshoreman, pro- 
vide«l. of course, that the.v need the 

"A man can't have too soueamish a re- 
gard for ethics or conscience if he going 
to pla.v poker. If I see cheating going on 
I mererly de<-Iare myself in. If 1 see a dir- 
ty card thrown or catch a man holding out 
I think my proper course would be to 
hum gently to myself and say. as If I were 
crooning a lu'alabv. '1 want a slice of that. 
I think I will have a slice of that, for the 
reason that it is too good to pass up.' Then 
the man who turned the trick would be 
l)retty apt to give me the wink: I would 
get a dIvvy for preserving the peace. 

"How, I admit that could get up and 
make a great roar. I could slam my card.<^ 
on the table and protest that I was a 
Kentucklan and a gentkman. and that, 
begad, sahl T would tolerate nothing of the 
sort in a game wherein I was sitting:. Wnat 
would be the result'.' The gambler woujd 
say I was mistaken, the sucker would get 
sore and sa.v he had been rolibed. and I 
would get nothing for my share. What 
would I do if the sucker was a friend of 
mine, whom I had taken up to the game? 
Such a case would never come up. for the 
reason that I never take a friend to a 
poker game. I always go up alone and 
ci'me down alone. Poker Is no place for 
friendship. Damon and Pythias would 
never have been heard of It the two chums 
liad ever sat down to a game of draw. 

"There are a good many ways of turning 
.1 crooked card. The cold deck Is fairly 
suf cessful. but it has to be done by an art- 
ist, and even then it is dangerous. Marked 
cards don't go with sports, for the decks 
are changed too often, when the stakes 
are high. The best methods are by stack- 
ing the cards and holding out. It takes a 
good man to do the former, and there arc 
times when he faJIs down and gives his 
opponents more than he Intended to. Hold- 
ing out Is the easiest, for the reason that 
the others always have to look out for 
themselves and see what they hold. A 
good manv sorts of mechanical devices 
have been Invented for holding out. and I 
have seen some poker players who were 
really walking pieces of machinery. Tho 
bug.' as It Is called. Is the most fre- 
ouentlv used, because it is so simple. It is 
nothing but an almost invisible s.'lt at the 
edge of the tal)le. where cards can be 
slipped Ini until they are wanted. It is a 
dangerous thing to bump up against, and 
it can be run by a good man until further 
orders without a show of detection.'

an Address on the Porto 

Rican Bill. 


Sonate Agreos to Conference 
Report on Consular and Di- 
plomatic Apprepriations. 

Washington, March 29.— The confer- 
ence report on the diplomatic and con- 
sular appropriation bill was agreed to 
by the .senate soon after it convened 

A concurrent resolution offered by 

Mr. Culberson directing the .secretary 

of war and the secretary of the navy 

to keep reasonably advised "the fami- 
lies of wounded .soldiers and .sailors of 
the condition of the men" was agreed to. 

Consideration of the Porto Rican tar- 
iff and governmental bill was then re- 
sumed. Mr. Beveridge addres.<;ed the 
senate in support of the proposition 
for free trade between the United 
States and the island of Porto Rico. Mr. 
Beveridge said: 

The i.ssue joined in this debate lnvolv?3 
tile powe'" of congress over tho Islands 
and the peoples which Providence has 
placfd In cur keeping, and therefore the 
expediency of retaining them. It lnvol\ es 
the power and i)rogress of the rei)ub'.lc 
throughout all its future. For if con- 
gress has not a free hand to deal with 
thtse Islands as their different conditions 
and changing needs demand, it Is not only 
inexpedient, but it may be Impossibic :o 
hold them. To treat Porto Rico as v.e 
treat Hawaii, and to deal with the latter 
as we deal with the Philippines, and to 
apply to all without dela.»- the same fixed 
formula of laws which custom and ih.' 
intention of statehood has prescribed for 
■ lur territories from which our states -ir'j 
formed, is a proposition as mad ai it Is 

The needs of Porto Rico are peculiar to 
Porto RU'o: we must admiid.^ter to them 
as good judgment may demand. The 
needs of Hawaii are pecidiar to Hawaii. 
The needs i,i the Philippines are |)ecul- 
iar to I be archipelago. "The needs of n\\ 
are utterl.v unlike our American states 
when thej- were territories. The pKejle 
of each island group are tinlike the i)e >- 
I'le of the other. And none of them are 
like thi- American pioneers who domi:i- 
ated our continental wilderness. And ii 
We ma.v not adoi)t measures fitting the 
condition and the necessities of each and 
change those measures as conditions .at.d 
necessities change, we must give them 

In a word, the question is whether the 
constitution gives congress a free hand 
over our possessions, or whether, if we 
retain them, the constitution gives them 
:i free hands over us. Tho constitution 
Iocs give us j)Owcr as ample as our op- 
portunities; power dare not (|uote it. lest 
it (onfouial them, but fly to subtleties 
liid relinements of other sections not 
oearlng on the matter in dispute; power 
-c clear that it bears almost the authori- 
1 .V of command; power written by the in- 
stinctive aniicipatiim of our development; 
I)ower penned b.v the rac-ial imf)ulse In tae 
hlood of the fathers; power so complete, 
emphatic and unusual that there is in it 
the suggestion of duty. 

I have no respect for constitutional 
learning which deals alone with the writ- 
le'i words <if the constitution, or even 
with the intention of its framers, and 
ignores the sources and spirit of that 
great Instrument. The constitution did 
not give us free institutions; no— the re- 
verse is true, and free institutions gave 
us our constitution. All our progress to- 
ward liberty and popular government, 
made since the adoption of the constitu- 
tion, has been archived not by virtue of 
tliat constitution, but sometimes in spite 
of and over it. Every impulse toward 
human fretdom and government by the 
peoi>le has been the spirit of our Insti- 
tutions, working out its sure results 
through tho (onstltution when nossible. 
and over It when nVessary. Jefferson 
wrote a bitter denunciation of human 
slavery In tho Declaration of Independ- 
ence, and called it an "execrable com- 
merce:" It was stricken out bv Georgia 
and South Carolina, and slavery was 
recognized In our constitution. But sla- 
very was opposed to tho spirit of our in- 
stMuiions. and while legalized bv our con- 
stitution and defended bv armies as 
brave as ever marched unflinchinglv to 
death, constitutional slaverv went down 
before institutional lihertv; and Appo- 
mattox was the capilulati<in of tho word 
of death in our constitution to the spirit 
of life In our Institutions. 

Our security, tho .securitv of our island 
wards, the seouritv of libertv. is not Ir. 
the written word of the constitution: it is 
In our institutions which are the spirit 
of the constitution. England has no writ- 
ten constitution: Franco has an ideal 
written constitution, and yet England ha.^ 
liberty and law; France has bureau- 
erncy and mllitarv nbsolutlsm. And It is 
the spirit of our Institutions that will pre- 
vent the abuse of power by American au- 
thority in Porto Rico, Hawaii, the Phil- 
ippines, or any other spot blessed by the 
protection of our flag— aye. and write" "ac- 
cur.^cd" ;uross tho brow of him who. even 
in a thought, would hold a scepter. 

We do not want justice given for the ba? c 
emergencies of i<olitical desneratlon, -is 
a faction wants It. But we want it as the 
high justification of our free hand. We 
want if as the exnression of our institu- 
tions. We want it In its own abstract 
right. We want it as a discharge of a 
plain duty. And we want It as a measure 
of statecraft looking to nur future as the 
dominant power of earth. Mr. President, 
the partisan opposition to the government 
pretends to want free trade with Porto 
Rico. H.qwaii and tho Philippines, it is 
this faction, this squadron of obstructing 
partisanship that has been from the first 
fipposlng the government. There Is no 
sincerity in their attitude; for the advo- 
cate free trade with our new posses=lons.t 
they say. because they are our posses- 
sions, and in the same sentence .advocate 
the abandonment of the possessions them- 
selves— whi<h is an antagonism in premises 
and a non-seqidtor In conclusion. This 
I)artlsan opposition to the government 
ask free trade with Porto Rico and the 
Philippines not because they believe in 
it. except as thev believe in free trade 
with all the world, but to frighten the 
timid with falsehoods about competition 
with pauper labor and so to prevent the 
nation from keening these priceless pos- 
sesions. That Is the motive of the partisan 
opposition to the government In urging 
free trade with Porto Rico. It Is an Issue 
they shall not have. 

Can men ask why those loyal to the 
yovernment in the house voted for a tar- 
iff and why we will not vote for it here? 
Why. senators, with the Immediate nec- 
essltv for revenue for Porto Rico staring 
the house in the face, it had that reason 
for Its court. Porto Rico's pressing need 
Induced the house to adopt this indirect 
tax which supplied the emergency. Were 
that the situation here, our similar action 
might be slmilarlv justified. But our ap- 
propriation of the more than $2,000,000 the 
eovernment had already collected from 
Porto Rico, giving them almost as much 
readv money as the jiroposed tax affords 
In the two years of its life, solves the 
problem for us and removes the reason 
for voting for that tax which was Influen- 
tial with the house. If you .say that this 
simple, wise and just suggestion should 
have occurred earlier to members of the

house or to the president, 1 answer that 
just simple.-^t things are most .-el- 
dom thought of because of their very .slm- 
pllcitv. Just these simple things mark 
the great statesman and great etatesman- 
ship. Just these simple things save cause.=; 
in the courts, battles In war, and nations 
in their crises and emergencies. 

Reciprocity with Porto Rico will hoii> 
that island; it cannot hurt us. No. it will 
h.lp us more than it will help Porto Rico. 
It affords us a safe experim<'nt W'itli our 
possessions at the very beginning of our 
experience as an administering power. 
For a nation of 70,000,000 of people with an 
imperial continent for its h^me, and 
practiced in all the arts of Industry, can 
not suffer in cempetition with a little 
island smaller than a single county of 
Texas, 1200 miles from our shores, aiu": 
people by less than one-seventieth of our 
number of Inhabitants, pov<^rty stricken 
and prostrate, i.ffnorant of th»> meaning of 
self-government, and beholding modern 
civilization as through a glass darkly. 
If the American republic, .iust embarkcil 
upon the grandest world career of all 
time, fears competition with the least ol 
its possessions, let us strike our colors 
as a sovereign power, tack from our cour.>-e 
marked out by the high inspiration ot 
preat events, put back to the port of de- 
cay, go out of commission, and let the 
mighty vovage on which we started be 
sailed by "bolder hearts, loftier faiths, 
and eyes" of clearer vision. 

If we give reclprocitv of trad? to this 
faithful little island it will Inspire confi- 
dence throughout Latin-America. It wiil 
create that friendship which is the basis 
of all genuine international understand- 
ings. It will encourage other peoplos to 
welcome our protection whenever it may 
be to our interest to extend it. And it will 
be thu unimpeachable witness at the 
of the nations and of history, to our lidel- 
ity to our national pledges, and to the 
purity of national purposes. 

For these reasons. I favor immediate 
reciprocity and I shall go on record as vot- 
ing for amendments giving immediate and 
unrestricted freedom of trade to our 
island of Porto Rico. But if we in the 
senate who believe that Porto Rico should 
have reclprocitv at once are not able to so 
amend the bill" here. I .shall, after votintr 
fof reciprocity amendments. v,ote for 
the civil government bill as modilied by 
the committee, because we must not deny 
civil government to the people of Porto 
Rico a moment longer, and because th< 
bill as modified insures free trade with 
Porto Rico as soon as the civil govern- 
ment of that island provides a system of 
taxation of its own. So that th«' sooner 
Porto Rico ffets civil government the 
<4uicker it will iret frpe trade undtr thp 
modittcatlons which the committee has 
made to the bill. I should be glad If the 
bill should be so separated that we might 
vote for civil government without the rev- 
enue feature, although the committee has 
modified that feature so as to insure earl.v 
frffdom of trade. But as the bill stand.-^. 
unless we can amend it, we must vote for 
it as modilied by the committee or eist- 
vote against rivil government altogether, 
and civil jrovernment must no lonK^r be 
denied to the people of Porto Rico. Delay 
of civil government to people, is de- 
nial of .iustlce. 

And so I shall vote for the civil govern- 
ment bill because it does establish civil 
government at once, and because, under 
Ihe modification bv the committee, it so 
established absolute reclnrocity in tho 
near future. It ouRht to establish unre- 
stricted trade Instantly, and it may be 
that the will so amend it if we 
shoidd iiot so amend it here. But if w.e are 
not able to so amend it here, and if the 
lioiise should not so amend it, but adopt 
the modified civil government bill, the 
committee's modification does give us the 
ab.solute certaintv of unrestricted trade 
at no distant date. The bill as a whole, 
while not what 1 would have It, JLn its 
failnrf to give Immediate and unrestrict- 
ed trade to Porto Rico and in other par- 
ticulars, nevertheless does establish civil 
government, which may not be delayejj an- 
other moment, and does insure early re- 
clprocitv, and so is a step in the right 
direction in our progrtss a.-? an adminis- 
tering nation and is a recognition of those 
great principles on which that progress

Washington. March ti?.— Some pre- 
liminary routine business was transact- 
ed In the house today. A bill was passed 
granting to the Minnesota & Manitoba 
Railroad company right-of-way across 
the ceded portion of the Chippewa and 
lied Lake Indian reservation. 

When the consideration of the army 
appropriation bill was resumed, Mr. Mc- 
liae attempted to secure an amendment 
to the provision giving officers and men 
serving beyond the limits of the United 
States 10 and '20 per cent respectively 
extra pay. which would limit the extra 
compensation to those serving in the 
Philippines. He thought there was no 
reason wny those serving in Porto Rico. 
Cuba and Alaska should receive addi- 
tional compensation. „„„j 

The paragraph to which the amend- 
ment would have been pertinent had 
been prepared, and Mr. Hull, in charge 
of the bill, refu.sed to return to It.

Philippine Spaniards Given Lender 
Perled te Adept NatleMlity. 

Washington, March :i9.^Secretary 
Hay and the Duke d'Arc5s, the Spanish 
minister, today signed a protocol ex- 
tending for six month.s the period of time 
allowed residents in the Philip- 
pine islands to elect whether they shall 
remain SpanLsh subjects or surrender 
their allegiance and adopt the nation- 
ality of the territory in which they re- 
side. The article in the Paris treat v 
bearing on this subject allowed the 
Spanish residents one year from the date 
of the exchange of ratifications of the 
treaty in which to make their choice. 
That iieriod expires on the 11th of next 

Ttie extension arranged for does not 
apply to Cuba or Porto Kico. It is con- 
fined in operation to the Philippines, for 
the reason that conditions in the archi- 
pelago have been so unsettled as to 
warrant the Spanish residents in hesi- 
tating to mak=? an election in this im- 
tating to make an election in this im- 
portant matter. Many important towns 
in Luzon where Spanish subjects reside 
are as yet without American garrisons, 
and the assertion of American sovereign- 
ty over them has been rather technical 
than practical, while on many of the 
Philippine islands no American troops 
or representatives of the American gov- 
ernment have ever landed. These con- 
siderations are deemd sufficient to war- 
rant the extension to the Spanish resi- 
dents of more time in which to make 
up their minds as to their future. It 
may be, too, that the Spanish residents 
in these islands desire to avoid making 
a choice until there has lieen some au- 
thoritative and final determination in 
the United States of the exact status of 
citizens in the insular possessions of the 
United States.

David Harum was a good horso trader, 
but a recent transaction in horseHesU 
which was made by a well-known Meni- 
phian sho*» that there are others who 
know how to get the long end of a horsi% 
trade, says the Memphis Scimitar. Several 
weeks ago this Memphis man saw a. line 
buggy liorse which he thought iie warned. 
He located the owner and asked the price. 
••One litty," was the reply. After looking 
the animal over closely and trying her 
speed he concluded it was a good trade, 
and without more ado wrote a check for 
the amount. The next day he found that 
the mare was as blind as a. bat, but this 
did not hinder her speed nor detract from 
her general appearance. He drove the ani- 
mal for several weeks and succeeded in 
attracting the admiration of another lover 
of horsetlesh, who made a proposal to 

••Well," said the Memphian, "I gave 
one fifty for her. but 1 will let you iiavc 
her for one sixty-five." 

The prospective owner looked the animal 
over and concluded he had a bargain. He 
paid over the money and took ine mare. 
When the animal was unhitched the lirst 
thing she did was to run against a i>ost 
and then by way of emphasizing the fact 
that she was blind, fell over a barrel. The 
next day the buyer came back to tlie 
.Memphian with blood in his eye. 

"Colonel, vou know that mare you sold 
me," he began. "Well, she's stone blind." 

"I know it." replied the colonel, with an 
easy air. 

•"I hat fellow who sold her to me didn't 
it." said the purchaser, his face reddening 
with anger. 

"Well, III tell you." replied the colonel. 
"That fellowe who sold her to me didn't 
tell me about it. and I just concluded that 
he didnt want ft known." 

The new owner took his medicine and Is 
now on the loo-kout for a friend on whom 
he can even things.

deemed nocessary. and such a better- 
ment is only a (luestion nf decision with 
the Pennsylvania railroad for its part 
of the route. Baltimore & Ohio officials 
have had in view for some time the es- 
tablishment of a direct connection for 
the South and the Seaboard Air line is 
generally regarded as its probable ally 
in this direclic.n. 

In connection with the proposed com- 
bination the depot question at Wash-

lar treatment looking to a mutuality

vania railroad ofTicials and those of the 
Atlantic Coast line. Southern railway 
and other lines entering Washington 
from the Si)Uth relative to a union depot 
for the North and South traffic. This 
may take a larger significance owing to 
the effort being made in Washington to 
have congress require all the roads en- 
tering Washington use a union ter- 
minal. The Baltimore & Ohio as well 
as the Pennsylvania has plans for a 
new depot and the elevation of tracks 
lo meet the demands made in the past 
l»y congress. Both of these big sys- 
tems contemplate heavy expenditures 
in this dirfcti»m. and the question of 
unifying this expense and give to 
Washington a great union terminal has

of the official family of both roads.

Strong opposition to the German meat 
inspection bill is manifested l)y the 
manufacturing, commercial and export 
circles of (lermany. The National Com- 
mercial Diet, which all the 
German chamber.'j of commerce. has 
enterc»d a protest against the adoption 
of the law. A well informed Fiankfort 
paper reports that there is a movement 
among the cotton textile manufactur- 
ers throughout Germany to petition the 
government not to allow this bill to be- 
lume a law. as they fear their brands 
will seriously suffer from the tariff war 
which would probably result. 

The chambt-r of commerce of Ham-

resolutions adopted liy the meat inspec-

tion of this bill would be. furthermore, 
extremelv injurious to the working

of commerce of Frankfort has unani-

its final acceptance would have omin- 
ous con.sequenoes for wide circles of 
German Industries and commerce, as 
well as a great advance in the 
price of a principal food article of the 
working i>opulation. The resolutions 
do not hesitate to affirm that: 

This legislative act is not in the 
slightest manner justified by sanitary 
considerations, but actually Involves 
the sacrifice of the interests of the most 
important productive cla.s8es of our 
country for the sole and one-sided 
benefit" of the agrarian movement. 

The Association of Chemical Manu- 
facturers of r.ermany. which is part of 
the central bureau for the preparaticm 
of commercial treaties, recently eon- 
vened in extraordinary meeting at Ber- 
lin and unanimously passed similar 
resolutions, from which the following 
extract is taken: . 

This association holds it to be unfair 
and that under the pretense of 
taking sanitary precautions, commer- 
cial-political measures are resorted to 
which encroach on international trade 
relations guaranteed by treaties and 
which mu.-r injur ■ our relations with

8ovtrnor Taylor States Policy In the 
Eleotlon Contest. 

Louisville, Ky.. March 2it.— Governor 
W. S. Taylor was in town awhile? today 
on his way to Butler county, where a 
sister died yesterday. 

While here the governor made a state- 
ment concerning his probable course In 
the event that the decision of the courr 
of appeals is against him. While it han 
been generally understcjc)d that the Re- 
publicans would not surrender the state 
offices on the judgment of that court, 
nothing official has heretofore been 
given out on the .suijject. Said Governor 

'The court of appeals has not yc: 
taken up the case, and any annt»unce- 
ment from me as to my actions after 
their decision would be premature. The 
agreement of the attorneys for both 
sides, however, states specifically there 
is to be no movement until the case is 
finally settled by the supreme court tf 
the I'nited States, and I think It will 
act by this agreement in every step i 
take and not give up any of the rights 
1 hold hv it." 


Foraker and Pettus Tinker Up Porto

act shall take effect, wares and mer- previously imfxirted from Port.i 
Hico into the United States for which no 
entry has been made, and all good.-^. 
ware:« and previously en- 
tered without payment of duty and 
under bond fo- warehousing, transpor-

no permit of delivery to the importer ..1 
his agent has Iven issued, shall be sub-

when duties are leased uiRin the weight 
of m.erohandlse deposited In any pulilic 
nr private bonded warehouse, said duties 
shall be levied and collected upon the 
weight of such merchandise at the time 
of its entry." 

Senator Pettus also introduced .«everal 
amendments to the Porto Rico bill as 

Providing a duty of r> cents per pound 
on all coffee Imported into porto Rico. 
Pn.hibiting the proposed Porto Rican 
legislature from enacting any law in 
ci>nflict with the constitution of the 
United States. That the constituticm of

Building Inspector Will Get 
After New Frame Build- 
ings In Fire Limits. 


People Who Want to Erect 

Them Endeavor to Get 


During the past few weeks a large 
number of frame buildings have been 
erected In the fire limits without the 
consent of the city, and Building In- 
.«pector Robinson has taken action in 
the matter. He has had a conference 
with the mayor and chief of police and 
the owner of any frame structure going 
up in viiilatiun of the fire limit ordin- 
ance will be taking risks. 

Most of the buildings that have 
been put up are fiame barns and 
stables. They are erected <iuietly in 
the rear of larger houses and as a usual 
thing are not discovered till completed. 
Mr. Hobin.son has promptly refused to 
issue permits for buildings of this kind 
in the fire limits and then the persons 
making the apiilication have gone 
ahead with the work in a rather clan- 
destine manner. 

The city officials say that it will have 
to be checked as frame buildings in 
the fire limit distri<;t have a tendency 
to increase the fire risks, raise the in- 
surance rates, and then the property 
owners on which these rates have been 
raised have a pretty good claim for 
damages against the city for not prop- 
erly maintaining and enforcing the pro- 
tecting ordinance. 

There are a number of very clever 
schemes resorted to by prospective 
builders in order to get a permit to 
build in the fire limits. The ordinance 
allows repairs to be made to frame 
buildings already in the protected dis- 
trict. Recently an East Superior street 
giocer called for a permit to make re- 
pairs to his stole. The man had been 
given notice to vacate the old store 
room and between It and another 
building was space large enough to put 
a fairly good-sized building. When 
asked what repairs he wanted to make 
-he said he merely wished to erect a 
little shed at the side of his store. AsRed 
for more particulars he admitted that 
all he wanted was to l>e allowed to put 
a front on the vacant space between 
the two buildings and possibly hook on 
a rear, and then throw a roof ovt r the 
intervening space. The walls of the 
other two buildings he figured would ba 
sufficient, and so under an application 
lor a permit for repairs he would be 
able to open up a new store building. 
The permit was denied. 


Duluth Man intarastad In an Idaho 

Sold MIno Having $10,000,000 

In Ora In Sight. 

Duluth capital for a couple of years 
has been turning slowly -and steadily 
towards gold mining, and today some 
of the best propositions on the contin- 
ent are owned or shared in by Duluth 
men. Very few of them, however, equal, 
and none excel, the proposition present- 
ed by the Atlanta Consolidated Mines 
company, ilmited, of Idaho. 

Several of the properties embraced in 
a recent consolidation were worked 
years ago, but through disagreements 
and transportation difficulties, have not 
been in active operation of late. The 
Atlanta mine alone, however, has pro- 
duced over $5,000,000 worth of gold, and 
on the dump, blocked out and in sight, 
there is today over $10,000,000 worth of 
ore. Plans have been formulated which, 
wtien carried out, will make xxjssibe, 
and very probabe, dividends of 2 per cent 
a month on the par value of the stock 

Among prominent Duluth men who 
are fortunate enough to have financial 
interests in the Atlanta Consolidated are 
Hon. Charles A. Towne. Judge Charles 
I.. Lewis and Messrs. Eckstein and Ben- 
nett. The last named are also agent." 
for the sale of the treasury stock. In 
addition, prominent and responsible Xew 
York and Chicago capitalists are inter- 
ested, and the practical management is 
in the hands of several of the best 
mining men in the Western states. 
Among these is Frank T. Day, of Boise 
City. Frank H. Summeil is general 
superintendent and- William R. Everett 
general counsel. T. F. Halveston. of 
Boise City. Idaho, one of the directors, 
is admitted to be one of the l>est author- 
ities on mining land in the I'nited 

In an exhaustive report on the At- 
lanta mine, the late Joshua E. Clayton, 
of Xew York, an eminent mining en- 
gineer whose reports are accepted. in the 
highest mining circles, says: 

"As a matter of fact. I would make 
estimates wltti equal confidence on the 
yield of this mine to a denth of 1000 
feet. (The greatest present depth Is 180 
feet.) In mining districts all over the 
world the case.s are rare where this can 
be done. This is one of those rare cases 
where the geological conditions, struc- 
ture of the lode and the re.'^ults already 
obtained all point unmistakably to con- 
tinuity of strength and values to great 

•'Only twice before, in a long engineer- 
ing and mining experience, tiave I ex- 
amlnefl mines professionally when I felt 
warranted in estimating values to 1000 
feet deep in advance of explorations. 

"The first case was m.v examination 
of the Keystone and Oarfleld claims on 
the great "Mother lode' in Amador 
county. Cal.. in the early part of 1865. 
The other was that of the Ontario mine 
in Utah, where the only explorations 
• consisted of a few surface openings of 
small extent. In both instances my pre- 
dictions (made from careful examina- 
tions of the geological formation and 
structure of the lodes) have been veri-

No One Has Claimid tha Unknown 
Man at Durkan's Morgue. 

The body of the unknown man picked 
up on the Duluth & Iron Range tracks 
twelve miles east of the city several 
days ago is still at Durkan's morgue 
and unidentified. The case is veiled iu a little mystery. The man's neck is 
bioken and there is a slight cut on his 
head. The theory is that he was struck 
In the back by a train, but this is by no 
means certain. He was well dres.sed f »r 
a woodsman, but there was nothin:^ 
about his clothing to tell who he is u- 
where he came from. It was rumored 
for a time the day after the accident 
that the man had met with foul play, 
and after being robbed was thrown off 
the train, but an investigation falls to 
give this the slightest foundation. 

A small boy called at Durkan's f^iis 
morning and said the man had been 
working on the range near Eveleth 
.^ome time ago, but he did not know his 
name. The body will be kept at the 
morgue for several days. 

I Pleasing Lecturer. 

Duluth i)eo|ile are to tiavc a very un- 
usual opportunity in the lectures of 
Lorado Taft, the celebrated sculptor, 
which are to be given next Tuesday and 
Wednesday evenings at the High School 
.\s.sembly hall on "The Art of Phidia.s" 
and "Praxitelis and Those Who Fol- 
lowed." The Chicago Inter-Ocean 
has the following to say of a lecture by 
Mr. Taft at the Art Institute: 

"Two hundred people spent a delight- 
ful two hours in the Art Institute lec- 
ture room last night. They had more 
gftod statuary thrown on a sireen be- 
fore their eyes than they could see in 
trotting around Europe in months, and 
considerably less worry about catchin.g 
trains and cold. It was Lorado Taft wb > 
was the Baedeker of this occasion. Mr. 
Taft, had he failed as a sculptor, would 
still have left an avenue toward success— 
the lecture platform. He adopts a pleas- 
ant manner of address, which is more 
conversational than elocutionary: more 
direct than flowery. You always feel 
that Mr. Taft knows what he is talkin;; 
about — which, unfortunately, cannot b.- 
said of some platformers. with their fine 
turned phrases. And so the talk last 
night, which was mainly on German 
sculptors and their work, was an un- 
mixed joy. The stereopticon was one of 
the best, the pictures were good — there 
are no other stereopticon views lilce 
those of statuary— the vocal letterpres.s 
of Mr. Taft was to the point, and the 
end came altogether too soon." 

The Produoe Market. 

Eggs settled down to 11 cents as the 
top prices yesterday, and there were re-

A Wood Seller's Grievance. 

To the Editor of Tiie lleiakl: 

I was standing last evening on Second 

avenue east and F'irst street, the place 

which 1 understood was to be used as a 

public market for farmers and aLso for 

wood peddlers. I had not been there 

more than three minutes when Capt. 

Resche came along and ordered me to 

i move on or he would run in the team. 

I I said all right, to do as he pleased, 

I but I would not move one foot from 

1 where I then was. I was not blocking 

j the street and thought that as a citizen 

I I had a right to stay there. Capt. Resche 

at once took charge of the team and 1 

left, supposing he had taken them to 

headquarters, but later I found he had 

sneaked off and left the poor animals 

standing on the street, shivering in the 

cold. I went io the city attorney and 

tried to have Resche arrested, but he 

sent me to the county attorney's office. 

There I found a young man who refu.sed 

to give me a warrant. I think it is an 

outrage that a taxpayer and voter 

should be treated in this way.

The New Golf Capes. 

Can you imagine anything more 
beautiful than the genuine "Clan" 
and "Tantan" plaids, same as the 
Kilts worn in Scotland! Nothing 
like them can be made by Ameri- 
cans; although they come very close 
to it at times. Many stores sell 
the American plaids or rather capes 
and get the same price as we do for 
the genuine Scotch stuff, but we've 
both kinds, and you can take either 
but the American cape is slightly 
less in price. Some especially at- 
tractive capes, are the Royal "Hunt- 
ing" Red with Tantan Plaid Back 
and hood, very Scotch and swell.

colors, navy smoke, gray, golf pink 
oxford, tan and royal blue; $14.50.

The Silk Waist From 
Fisk, Clark & Flagg. 

Possibly no Waist event in recent 
months has created so much force- 
able comment as havethesebeautilful 
ideas of Silk French Dress Workers 
and you cannot form any correct 
idea of them unless they are before 
you — and then you wonder where 
all these ideas come from. But if 
you know of Fisk, Clark & Flagg 
you will also know that they stop 
at nothing when style and c]uality is 
concerned; for they have a repu- 
tation for high class goods and it 
must be upheld by art and good 
taste. That is why such well 
known firms as Altmans, Stearns, 
Wanamakers and Forsythe, (who 
makes a specialty of Shirt Waists) 
buy so many high class Waists of 

tliem. We 
were quite 
fortunate in 
being able 
to buy this 
one lot of 
them at 
over halt. 
These are 
being sold 
the same

for some of our other store friends 
telling you what they "don't" know 
about the Fisk, Clark & Flagg

Strong Boer Force Succeeds 

In Befling North From 

Orange River. 


Thought Impossible That It 

Gould Escape— Strengthens 

Force Opposing Roberts. 

dead general as a gallant soldier and 
an honorable foeman . 


New York. March 30.— A dispatch to 
the Tribune from London says: The 
successful retirement of Dutch com- 
mandoes of considerable strength 
from Orange river to the northern 
reach of the Free State is now claimed 
by the Boer authorities at Pretoria and 
conceded by the British staff. 

It was not considered possible that 
these Dutch forces could escape cap- 
ture when Bloemfontein was occupied. 
Their retreat has been a remarkable 
achievement which reflects great credit 
upon the Dutch commander, since his 
forces were beset on all sides by British 
in superior strength. 

With this reinforcement, the Boer 
army will be enabled to make a strong 
fctuiid on the northern ridges of the 
Free State. 

Gen. Buller would have been severely 
criticised If the Boers had slipped 
through his lines In similar circum- 
stances, but no military writer has a 
word of censure for Gen. Roberta for 
his failure to Intercept the retreat of a 
body of 6000 burghers. National faith in 
••Bub.s' is unquestioning. He Is regard- 
ed by the press and nation as a general 
v.ho thinks of everything and never 
mak'^s mistakes and con-sequently. the 
fact that the Dutch comandoes have 
retreated by forced marches Without 
being harrassed, blocked and captured 
Is proof that the British army needed to 
halt around the capital and prepare 
for an arduous campaign northward. 
Gen Roberts has secured the enviab.e 
distinction of commanding public con- 
fidence so completely that he is no 
longer exposed to criticism. 

There Is no interruption In the out- 
ward movement of reinforcements from 
England to Cape Town. A large force 
is now at sea, and battalions of regu- 
lars, yeomanry and volunteers are pre- 
oaring to embark. 

The prince of Wales reviewed yester- 
dav live companies of yeomanry shan^- 
shooters and congratulated their many 
distinguished officers upon the appeal - 
ance of the corps. The titled and 
wealthv classes are strongly represented 
in the" yeomanry, which, as recruited 
and onic-ered. Is a picked body of good 
riders and crack shots. 

Shipments of horse.- for remounts 
and military stores are cont nued on a 
ar^e scale. The truth is cl-arly per- 
ceived by members of parliament and 
.ul.lic men that two Dutch repu ".ics 
must be overrun and occupied b'^ an 
overwhelming British force and that 
the work of the army must be ^one 
with thoroughness. A remark ^^hi«h is 
constantly heard anvmg member* of 
the house of commons Is: 

-No compromise, no convention, no 
intervention, but complete occupation 
of the entire district by an army ade- 
nuate to enforce the faax Brltannlca.

Rtady ta Mava. 

London. March 30. 2:30 p. m.— The 
reports that Lord Roberts will remain 
at Bloemfontein another month are 
probably Intended for Boer consump- 
tion, and the recent movement of troops 
and other indications point to prepar- 
ations being well advanced for a for- 
ward movement. The entire silence of 
the cables this morning is regarded as 

The fact that the Boer telegrams an- 
nouncing the bombardment of Mafe- 
klng Monday and Tuesday do not claim 
any success Is accepted as proof that 
they met with none, and hopes are en- 
tertained that It may prove to have 
been the final effort to reduce the place 
before raising the siege. 

It Is now suggested that the appar- 
ent Inactivity of the British at War- 
rentown is merely designed to impress 
the Boers with the notion that they 
are checking the Mafeklng relief col- 
umn, which, in reality, is advancing by 
a westward detour. Color is lent to 
this view by the announcement that a 
column of 3000 mounted troops, com- 
manded by Col. Drummond and ac- 
companied by three batteries, a pontoon 
train and several wagojib- of ammuni- 
tion, passed Berkeley

Younf eirl the YIetim of a Doetor's 

Chicago. March 30.— Because of an ocul- 
Ipfs error Anna Dudley, of Marion, Ind.. a 
pretty girl less than 20 years old, will be 
blind for life. The sight of one eye was 
ruined bv her brother three months ago, 
and recently a physician attempted to re- 
move the eye, but by mistake operated on 
the wr'^'s one and left hl« p-tlent totally 

The ph\-slclan who made the »-rror is now 
practicing in this city, having remo vet 
from Marlon as soon as he discovered 
what he had done. MemV>ers of the Ocu- 
llt^ts' society refuse to give his name. 

Last Christmas Miss Dudley was shot In 
the eve bv an arrow from an air gun m 
the hands of a young brother The at- 
tending phvslcian .said he feared the sigot 
had been destroyed. Miss Dudley was 
brought to Chicago and an operation <ie- 
ei.!e<l upon. The Marion physician prr- 
formed It In an oculist s office In the M-i- 
.sonlc Temple. 

When Miss Dudley recoverod she was 
asked If she could see out of the injurt.l 

"^^"i am wholly blind." she answered "T 
cannot see from either eye; all is blaoK 

"^Examination showed that the wrong eye 
had been treated. The phvslcian who per- 
formed the operation said he had ma<1e a 
mistake for which he could offer no ex- 
cuse Miss Dudlev was not told of her 
misfortune and did not know when she 
left for Indianapolis a few days ago that 
she would be blind for life. ' 

St. Paul, March 30.— A Glendive, Mom., 
special to the Dispatch says: At 2:26 o'clock 
this morning Joseph C. Hurst was exe- 
cuted In the jail yard here and eleven min- 
utes later life was pronounced extinct. 
He maintained his innocence to the last 
and in reply to a question by Sheriff 
Aiken, Hurst, while upon the scaftola, 
said: , , T 

"Ifs all a mistake; it's all a mistake. I 
forgive you all as Jesus did." 

Parents, sisters and brothers, wife and 
two children and near relatives took their 
last leave of the condemned man yester- 
day afternoon and the leave-takings were 
very affecting. , ^, . i ^„ 

Father Claude M. Eisner, of Dickinson, 
N D , was telegraphed for at the solici- 
tation of Hurst, who was baptized as a 
Catholic and received the last rites of the 
church before he left his cell. 

The feeling in Glendive is that the law 
ha« avenged the murder of Sheriff Dom- 
Inick Cavanaugh, on Friday evening. Dec. 
2! 1S9S bv this execution, and had gov- 
ernor Smith commuted the sentence or 
interfered in any way. people who pa- 
trolled the streets from early last even- 
ing could not have been restrained. 

Extra precautions were taken by Sher- 
iff Aiken by the appointment of a num- 
ber of special deputies in case of trouble, 
but evervthing was quiet and orderly. 

Hurst and Cavanaugh were respectively 
Republican and Democratic candidate.s 
for sheriff in 1898. the letter being elected 
by a small plurality. Shortly afterwards 
Cavanaugh was brutally assassinated in 
an allev. Hurst being appointed sheriff 
bv the" county commissioners. 

Hurst was convicted on circumstantial 
evidence and a sensational fight for nis 
life had been made.

Washington, March 30.— (Special to 
The Herald.)— Census Director Merriam 
has raised a storm among the politi- 
cians by a letter he sent to the mem- 
bers of congress, under date of March 
24. The director states in this letter 
that while he wants 1500 to 1800 more 
clerks he does not want any more men 
appointed, but wants these places filled 
by female clerks. 

This fact has caused all the trouble. 
Mr. Merriam, in writing the letter, did 
so to notify the congressmen that, if 
they want their share of the patronage, 
they will have to file a list of female 
constituents they want appointed, be- 
cause he does not want any more male 
clerks. The patronage of the census 
bureau has been divided among the 
members of both parties. 

The trouble with the congressmen is 
that they have already nominated a 
number of appointments for places due 
them and have been reserving vacan- 
cies to give to men who. they think, will 
do them good in their coming con- 
gressional campaign. The director now 
informs them that he wants no more 
male clerks, and the congressmen who 
have made promises are very much 
wrought up as to what to do under the

Next Tuesday the final vote on the 
Porto Rican bill will be recorded In the 
senate. Yesterday's vote Indicates that 
the proposition to tax the products of the 
island 15 per cent of the Dingley rates 
will stand. As that proposition Is the 
bone of contention. It is safe to predict 
that the bill will pass the senate, but 
inasmuch as a number of amendments 
have been aded to the house bill, it will 
be necessarv to secure the concurrence 
«' the lower hcusT In the changes which 
have been incorporated. The house 
leaders have decided to forestall discus- 
sion lor a time afleast by moving to 
non-concur In the amendments as soon 
as the bill is reported from the senate.^ 
This move. If successful, will throw the 
whole subject into a conference, and 
after the conference committee shall 
have acted, it is the purpose of the ways 
and means committee to curtail the time 
for discussion to the briefest possible 
moment. Apparently today the opposi- 
tion to the proposed tariff is greater in 
the house than it was when the bill was 
passed originally, but the history ot 
legislation in congress in the past 
twentv years favors the supposition that 
the bi"il will eventually l>e sent to tho 
president substantially as It comes back 
from the senate. The prediction that 
the free trade program will be killed is 
advanced, but time will show that the 
e\ents of the next ten days will be but a 
repetition of the old story, and that this 
revenue measure, indorsed as it is by the 
wavs and means committee, will be dis- 
posed of in a manner satisfactory to the 
ringleaders of the house.

Paris. March 30. 2:15 p. m.— An official 
account has been issued of the victory of 
the French troops over the Arab army 
at^nrahr. which assembled with the 
object of attacking the French expedi- 
tion which recently occupied the (»sis 
of Insalah. southwest of Algeria. The 
French learned of the scheme and de- 
cided to storm the enemy's position, 
which was successfully earned March 
19 by a column led by Lieut. Col. Eu. 
The town was first bombarded and then 
stormed, the Arab warriors making their 
last stand In the mosques. ^They left 600 
men killed and 100 wounded on the field. 
In addition, 450 prisoners were taken. 

The French losses were nine native 
soldiers killed, thirty-eight wounded 
and two officers w ounded.

Copenhagen, March 30.— A syndicate

subject to the sanction of the rigsdac. 

The manufacturers of the United 
States are the most active among our 
importers at the present time. In the 
month of February, the details of whose 
commerce have just been presented by 
the treasury bureau of statistics, manu- 
fa-'turers' materials amounted to almost 
one-half of the total importations, if we 
include under thi- ..rm the importations 
classified bv the bureau of statistics as 
"articles wholly or partially manufac- 
tured for use In the manufactures and 
mechanic arts." The total importations 
in the month of February were $68.. <4^- 
150. Of this amount. $25,936,601, or 3<.-l 
per cent, was classified by the bureau of 
statistics as 'articles in a crude condi- 
tion whi?h enter into the various proces- 
ses of domestic industry." which, of 
course, entitles all of these to be classi- 
fied as 'manufacturers' materials." Fol- 
lowing this comes another group or 
$6 732,437 which the bureau classifies as 
"articles' wholly or partially manufac- 
tured for use In the manufactures and 
mechanic arts." which it seems to be 
proper to also classify as "manufactur- 
ers' materials." This gives a total, 
therefore, of manufacturers' materials 
amounting to $32,669,038. or 47'^ per cent 
of the total importations. Thus it may 
properly be said that practically <me- 
half of the foreign productions comln? 
into the United States at the present 
time are for use in the factories of the 
I'nited States. To this may V>e added 
another statement that another quarter, 
practically, of the Importations cannot 
be produced In the United States in suf- 
ficient quantities for the use of its 
population. The February importations 
of "articles of food and live animals hav- 
ing amounted to $16,254,153. or 23.63 per 
cent of the imports for that month. 

Taking the eight months ending with 
February, it is found that articles of 
food formed 25.15 per cent of the total 
imports; manufacturers' materials, in- 
cluding the two classes above named — 
articles in a crude condition, and articles 
wholly or partially manufactured for use 
in the mechanic arts— amounted to 45.62 
per cent. Thus, while importations have 
materially increased, it may be said of 
them that practically one-half are ma- 
terials for use in the factory, one-fourth 
for food, and the other quarter manufac- 
tures and luxuries. ...,„„

Saturday <^ 


Alabama Senator Peppers 

Oalllnger and Gets a 

Laugh on Beverldge. 

Washington, March 30.— Notice was 
Riven in the senate todaj- by Mr. De- 
pew that he would address the senate 
on Monday next on the Porto Rlcan 

Bills were passed as follows: For the 
relief of the heirs of L.awrence D. 
Bailey, ratifying an appropriation by 
the legislature of Oklahoma out of the 
Morrill fund for the use of the univer- 
sity at Langston for colored students; 
authorizin? the secretary of the inter- 
ior to issue a patent to the city of Kl 
Rena, Oklahoma, for cemetery pur- 

A resolution offered yesterday by Mr. 
Jones directing the secretary of war to 
send to the senate a copy of the pro- 
ceedings of the court of inquiry called 
to investigate the commissary depart- 
ment of the army, was passed. 

Mr. Spooner gave notice that he would 
address the senate next Monday on the 
Porto Rico bill. 

Consideration of the Porto Rico bill 
w-as resumed at the conclusion of the 
routine business, Mr. Proctor address- 
ing the senate. He spoke as an unal- 
terable advocate of the policy of free 
trade between the island and .the 
United States and was accorded close 
attention on both sides of the chamber. 

In opening his speech, Mr. Proctor ex- 
pressed his approval of the civil gov- 
ernment features of the ponding bill 
and his regret on account of the tariff 
provision that he could not vote for it. 
He reviewed briefly the history of the 
proposed Porto Rico tariff, quoting the 
president in his annual message and the 
secretary of war. in his annual report, 
as favoring free trade l)etween the 
island of Porto Rico and the Tnited 
States. Then he referred to tho sudden 
change that somehow had i)een wrought 
and said: 

"Is It strange that some of us, in lack 
of an oltlcial statement or apparent rea- 
son for this sudden shift, should be olow 
to sive up a line of action which w» b«;- 
lleve to l>e based on principle and jus- 

are in the very direst poverty and dis- 
tress, resulting In a large part from our 
very action In ttiktng possession of their 
Lsland and destro.vlng the existing mar- 
kets for their products and opening no 
other, and to this Is added, by the hand 
of the Almighty, ^he terrible destruction 
of tornado, so that they are now in the 
extreme of poverty and destitution bor- 
dering on starvation. 

"If this bill becomes a law. It will stand 
greatly In the way of the development 
of that little Island. It leaves the future 
In uncertainty, for If we levy a tax of 15 
per cent, the next congress mav levy u 
tax of 60 per cent. If we adopt free trade, 
it will be accepted by everybody as a defi- 
nite policy toward Porto RIoo. Business 
Interests will know what to depend upon, 
and capital and enterprise will go there 
and soon change the deplorable conditions 
now existing. Uncertainty will paralvzo 

"The "constitution may or mav not fol- 
low the flag, but th.- good faith of the 
American people must stand unquestlonod 
wherever the Stars and Stripes are seen, 
rhrre Is no way to successfully govern 
or deal with pt'ople who are In our power 
or are Inferior to us in Jidvantage.s and 
opnortunltv. except to be strictly lust. 
to keep perfect good faith with thom. 

The plea of harmonv in the party ap- 
peals to me strongly. But this Is a que.'?- 
tion higher than party or pollcv; It is 
a question of principle, and It Is better 
that even a small minority of the party 
should be right than that we should all 
be wrong. 

"It Is of vital consequence, Mr 
dent that thi.'i, our first Important step 
in legislation for our new possessions, 
should be such as to commend Itself to 
the judgment and conscience of the Am- 
erican people." 

At the conclusion of Mr. Proctor's 
speech, Mr. Pettus addre.ssed the senate 
on some of the constitutional phases 
presented by the Porto Rlcan bill. 

■'I will attempt to show," said Mr. Pet- 
tus, "how a majority of this senate has 
quit the public road— the road pointed 
out by the law; and also show what the 
result of it will be. 

"In discussing this question, we will 
get back to the very foundations. Th'> 
great error of those In the majority here 
is that they are in violation if all our 
notions of justice and common sense. 
They take their departure In the sense 
that the United States is a sov-reign in 
the sense that some European nations 
are sovereigns. It is not so and can 
never be. 

"We are governed in our relations with 
these territories by the law of nations 
so far as they are applicable. The idea 
is that when territory is ceded to a 
nation, that nation cannot necessarily 
exercise the powers of its former owners. 
It must exercise sway in accordance 
with Its own limitations. When we took 
these islands we took them with the 
limitations of exercising only power over 
them as was possible in the condition of 
the United States.

Session Mainly Dovotod to Dlsous- 
slon of War Claims. 

Washington. March 30.— In the house, 
under the rule, today was set aside for 
the consideration of bills reported from 
the committee on war claims. Some pre- 
liminary routine business was transact- 

A bill was passed to create Green Bay, 
Wi.s., a sub-por* of entry. 

The house then went into committee 
of the whole under the rule. Without 
debate the bill to pay the eastern ex- 
tension of the Australasia & China Tele- 
tlce; which we believe to be the only I ffraph company the cost of repairing the 
honest and consistent course? Manilla-Hong Kong cable, cut by Ad- 

"It is charged— I do not know what 
the truth, if any— that this change was 
demanded and brouKht about the 
and tobacco Interests, and also it is stat- 
ed, by organized labor. * 

"I. however, have failed to see that 
the representatives of this latter Interest 
appeared before the committee. It is prac- 
tically ailmltted that free trade with Porto 
Rico does not harm those int»'rests mau- 
rialiy, but they claim that it creates a 
precedent that may harm them if adopuMi 
in reference to the I'hillpplnes and Cuba, 
it will be time to cross those rivers whi'u 
we come to thfUi, and, in mv opinion, the 
cro.ssln^ will not be difficult when the 
projicr lime comes for action." 

Mr. Proctor then (luoted a lone lettor 
written him l\v former Senator (Jeor^t K. 
Kdmun.js, who tiealt with some of to'- 
constitutional phases of the pending 
Muestlons. Here ;ire some extracts from 
Mr. Edminids' letter: 

"Any such measure. If enacted, will, 1 
believe, be unicpie in our whole hist<uv. 
I.I will imitate and parallel the ads of ilie 
iiritish parliament which forced our 
fathers to resistance and revolution 
and le<l them to establish a constitution 
which, in studied and explicit terms, for- 
bade any such dl.scrimination. 

"Congress is the creature of the con- 
stitution and not the rever.'^e. A law 
passed by < on^ress is its creation, a mere 
«.xpre.ssion of its will, which it mav repeal 
or change at pleasure. If. therefore, as- 
suming that constitution does not exist 
In Porto Rico, congress were to enacc 
a statute declaring that the present c<m- 
stitutlon shall be extended over and be 
in force In that island, the constitution 
gets Its only force there bv the virtue of 
the statute. It is a statutorv constitu- 
tion and nothing else, and a repeal of liie 
statute would it. Hut the (on- 
stitution as such. I suppose all admit Is 
not subject to the ctmtrol of congres.^. 
either to enlarge or to diminish, to ex- 
liand or contract, or to be applied to or 
withdrawn from any people or place. It 
js not a movable thing, like the ark of 
the covenant of the Israelites, to be set 
up iind moved here or there, as the tribes 
might wander. It Is the actual event and 
condition and not the lecrlslatlve or legis- 
lative will that must, in the nature of 
things, determine the status of a man or 
countrv under it. 

"Porto Uico and its people came under 
the sovereignty of the United Statr-s !)v 
toree of treaty with Spain, and I think 
a I will agree that if any i)art of the peo- 
ple of the island levied war against or 
atllierejj to our enemies, etc., thev would 
oe guilty of treason. Hut treason is an 
exclusively (kliued constitutional crime 
anil It cannot exist on the island unless 
the constitution delines it Is In force 

^Ir. Proctor then continues:

Businsss Men Favor Enlar^lns Com- 
mtroo Commission's Powsrs. 

Washington, March 30.— The senate 
committee on intersitate commerce 
heard arguments in support of the pro- 
position to amend the interstate com- 
merce law by James M. Langley, of the 
Alerchants' as.'^ociation, of New York; 
E. P. Jiacon, of grain merchant of Mil- 
waukee, and H. F. Douseman, of the 
Chicago board of trade. 

Mr. Langley said that ho represented 
35,000 of the largest business houses in 
the United States, 1200 of them being 
in New York. They wanted the hands 
of the Interstate commerce commission 
strengthened. Mr. Langley said, feeling 
that they were "as much at the mercy 
of ^the secret rate harpies as prior to 

Mr. Bacon thought the law should 
either be made effective or stricken off 
the books. He also expresseil the opin- 
ion that the interstate commerce com- 
mission should have the power to con- 
vict in cases where the members were 
convinced of violation of the law, even 
where the proof did not reach the strict 
technical requirements. 

Mr. Dousman complained especially 
of dl.scrimination in rates on the part 
of the railroad companies, and wanted 
the law so amended as to put a stop to 
the practice. 

A report went careering wildly 
through the inner circles of speedy life 
last night that the police were about to 
make a few more raids. It was a 
steer, but it caused a feeling, chill and 
dismal, to infest the Joyous resorts along 
the Bowery. Woe was heavy upon th" 
souls of the erstwhile gay citizens of 
that blithesome district, and things were 
as orderly as a half-open-side-door Sun- 
day. As a result only four drunks 
watched the flowery feet of spring come 
tripping over the hills through the win- 
dows of police court this morning. 

And only one of the drunks was sport- 
ively inclined. He was wearing a smile 
that was positively cherubic, and 
showed his Waterbury teeth. He was 
arrested last night while in the act 'of 
filling the circumambient atmosphere 
with large fragments of language ex- 
actly the color of his own rod hair. His 
name was Pete Brown, and his sentence 
was ten days. John Westberg and Pat 
Jasty each paid lines of $10 and costs, 
and Frank Par, charged with being 
away below par, entered a plea of not 
guilty and was sent back for a hearing 
late this afternoon. 

Late thia afternoon there was a 
matinee performance, which netted the | 
municipal court $752 in fines. On the 
boards there were all sorts and condi- 
tions of people that had forsaken the 
joys of life for a soubrette existence. 
Some were brilliant, high-strung bru- 
nettes of so dark and vivid a coloring as 
to be almost Oriental. Then there were 
blondes attired in diaphanous wrappers, 
which but faintly concealed from view 
the outlines of Saphoesque forms. Some 
had clear complexions of pure rouge, 
while others had only heavy-eyed and 
firoggy countenances. 

Two prisoners weer not arraigned, for 
the reason that they are wanted in West 
Superior, charged with stealing $H0 from 
a drunken woodsman in a Tower avenue 
saloon. Their names are Frank Gibbon.^ 
and John Balton, and they we/'e arrested 
on the Bowery at 10 o'clock last night by 
Chief of Detectives Troyer and Detective 
Kelly of West Superior. 

John Olscn. a woodsman, was .trrested 
at noon today charged with stealing a 
badly mismated pair of shoes from a 
.second-hand dealer having half his 
stock out on the sidewalk encouraging 
petty larceny. One of the shoos was a 
No. 8 and the other a No. 10. and both 
were for the same foot, but the shoes 
were left outside with such tempting 
freedom that Olsen .says he took them 
just to keep some person else from do- 
ing it. 

Yesterday afternoon Moses Cook, the 
saloonkerper. of 433 West Superior street, 
and Thomas Doyle, who runs a saloon 
on Central avenue. West Duluth. were to 
have iHcn examinr-d for keeping their 
T'laces of liquid refreshment nior-' than 
half open. Both waived the right to a 
municipal couit examination, and were 
bound over to the grand jurv with bail

Lake Freight Rates. 

Like all of the other branches of the 
lake trade, grain starts out strong as re- 
gards lake freights. Charters have been 
made for cargoes to be moved at the 
opening of navigation at 3>4 cents to 
Buffalo, and while the market is not es- 
r>ocJally active, there is a little business 
doing right along. This rate is equiva- 
lent to about the same figure as the ore 
rate, adt like all the other business that 
has been done, indicates an active and 
prosperous seas«>n.

ChlcaK'>. -March :;n.-That uol-to-be- 
smothered report of damages to the 

French croj) appeand during the forenoon 
session in the wheal market, and to- 
gether with a reported blizzard in Austria 
and rlrm cables from I'.uda Pesth, fur- 
nished such encouragement that the mar- 
ket shook off Its early dejjression and 
w- lit up If/l'^c with a l.tirly active trade. 
St. Louis led tin- Viuylng and the market 
there was stron;;. May cpen'-d \i'<t':ti,r down

Chicago, March .'10.— Wheat has .Inen 
nervously strong in the face of generally 
bearish news. The Modern Miller was 
bearish in its crop summary and reports 
from Kansas were also very favorable. 
There is a stubborn resistance in wheal 
Indicative of strength which may result 
In an oui and out bull mark<l. Consldera- 
able covering, however, has been indulged 
in and doubtless the ehort Interest is not 
(|uite so large as It has been but still of 
-sufllcient size to make further favorable 
news result In decidedly higher i)rlces. 
The situation is a nervous one for the 
short side and It looks as If purchases on 
all breaks for the present will prove protll- 

The corn market has been strong, whh 
excellent buying by large and Influential 
people. The difficulty of obtaining cars 
is embarrassing the cash business to a 
large extent and undoubtedly much more 
would be worked, were the facilities b«t- 
ter. As we have stated many time bofort 
this advance in corn Is fully warranted 
and supply and demand conditions now ex- 
isting Justify considerable higher jirlces. 

Oats have "been steady with corn. Cash 
prices about yesterdays figures and some 
Inislness done. 

Provisions have been nervous, with roild 
fluctuations but a buying tendency Is in 
evidence. The market opened weak with 
hogs off 3c. Fluctuations have been gov- 
erned somewhat bv the strength in corn, 
but the market is very erratic and dlfli- 
cull to follow.

feature of the market was the unusually 
large attendance of buyers at the auction 
sale, and bidding on ah classes of horses 
was active, especially had farm horses 
ami lieav.v draft horses for city use. a 
strong demand. The trade which has In- 
< reased .'^^^o rapidly for the past w«ek Is 
causing some anxiety how to be able lo 
procun- available horses for the urgent 
demand, as such horses are scarce in the 
countr.v and high in price. The large sur- 
lilus of horses on hand brought satisfac- 
tion to the buyers, and selections were

Liverpool, later became very .=«trong on 
active buvlng bv local bulls, as well as lot

May %c, Julv %^v higher than last night. 
Liverpool rcnorted their market weak, 
a,d lower for the day but our friends ca- 
bled us there was no real cause for the 

decline, and their market would respond 

the vurds, ' quickly to any improvement on this side. 
' t onlinenlal markets were geneially strong 
and higher. Country offerings were .->-ery 
light, while cash demand was brisk and a 
very large business has been done, no; 
only from here, but from the seaboard for 
direct export. Receipts al Liverpool ciurlng 
the past three days were over •.•C.,000 bus, 
wliereas tlieir con.sumption is at the rate 
of 100,000 bus per day. Danubian ship- 
ments this week were only Iti.OOO bus 
iigalnsl 1.135.W) bus last year. Argentine 
shlpm»nts were only S(MHn^ bus and ex- 
ports as reported bv Bradstreels for the 
we.k were a little over ."..OtlO.tHHi bus. Tiie 
total combined is considerably short of 
lOuropean ie<piirements and their sioek.s 
are likely to show anoUur decrease this 
week as also will the amount on passage. 
Trade has been very large all day with 
considerable Increase In outside specula- 
tion. The foreigners are just beginning 
to wake up to the situation and are free 
buvers and in our opinion will have to 
continue buviiig for some time to come, 
no matter how high the price may go. 
This countrv absolutely holds the situ.i- 
tiou ami edi'i dieiate her own terms. We 
advise our friends to take the opportu- 
nilv of buying on every' little yei buck 
whiih mav lake place from time to time 
on realizing bv small holders. Lsiimated 
receipts for tomorrow 400 cars. 

Oats ruled very strong all 

dav with an active trade and dosed 4c 
higher than ,ast night. Country offer- 
ings were moderate, while cash demand 
was very good. We believe oats will sell 
higher with corn. Estimated receipts for 
tomorrow. 22i> cars. 

Provisions opened lower on small de- 
cline in hogs, but later on vigorous buy- 
ing bv shorts an<l brokers advanced 
sharplv. The market is in unsatisfactory 
state and too nervous to All orders ai or 
near the market quotations. There is 
good buvlng of July nroduci on unreason-

Mexican Inhabitants Much 

Like Those Who Lived In 

Bygone Centuries. 

Frank E. Searle returned last nigixt 
from a trip to Alexico, during which he 
visited some very interesting portions of 
that ancient American country. To a 
Herald reporter who asked him about 
Ills trip he said: 

"Ag a winter trip for men in search of 
health or pleasure the trip is an excel- 
lent one. The weather was pleasant all 
of the time, the sky absolutely cloudless, 
and the mountain scenery was grand 
and wild in the extreme, especially in 
some of the canons through which we 
traveled. I wps down the west cioast 
aboui 1000 miles from the American 
border in the states of Sonora, Slnaioa 
and Durange, the former coast state.-? 
and the latter in the interior. From 
Culiacan, the capital of Slnaioa, we 
Went to Durganga, among the moun- 
tains. Sonora is the country of the 
Yaqul Indians, now in rebellion, but 
from all we could hear the trouble has 
been exaggerated more the farther the 
news of it traveled, and It seemed that 
the troops had the rebellious Indians 
pretty well surrounded, and the in- 
surrection is nearly stamped out. 

"It has been said that if Christ should 
come to earth he would find more fami- 
liar scenes in Mexico than anywhere 
else in the world, and I can well be- 
lieve it. It is like a change from one 
world to another to step from Amei 
lean soil to Mexican and not the 
changed customs. The scenes there 
are like nothing so much as the pic- 
tures we see of the old. old times, with 
the little adobe or thatched huts, with 
earthen vessels standing about, or wo- 
men carrying them on their heads. The 
manners are all primitive, and the 
clothing startlingly suggestive of a by- 
gone age. The people that do not go 
barefooted wear sandals and that is a 
striking difference. Along the coast 
there are some tine plantations of sugar, 
cotton, etc., but conditions change after 
the mountains are reached. There min- 
ing and grazing are the principal pur- 
suits and we saw many cattle. While 
there is plenty of fine soil in Mexico, 
the part 1 visited has little agricultural 
future. Mining is being carried on to a 
very large extent, and increasing and 
there are many Americans interested 
In the Mexican mines. On the train 
that took me to Mexico were three of 
the Calumet & Heda people, who have 
a very fine gold and copper mine there." 

J. J. Mc.Auliffe. who was on the .^anie 
train that took Mr. Searle into Mexico, 
also returned yesterday. Their trip wa« 
enlivened in Arizona, near the Mexican 
bt.rder. by a hold-up, conducted by six 
who made an attack on tho 
oar. The passengers who re- 
in the coaches were not molest - 
those who came out from curi- 
see what was going on, were 
lined up In a row and caused to behave 
themselves while the bandits handled 
their little affair with the express mes- 
senger, though no passengers were 
ribbed. The latter opened fire on them 
and sh' I one. Later the bandits re- 
taliated by shooting the expre.«s messen- 
ger In the arm. The bandits got away 
with the spoil In the express car. bui 
lali-r the Americans hoard that five of 
tiiem had been captured, and that the 
authorities expected to get the sixth. 
Or? of thofo captured was the one shot 
by the messenger, and he died after he 
was caught. 

Mr. .M.-Auliffe was in Mexico looking

How Mehror-TyndaH Can Road Your 
Llfo*s History In Your Hand. 

The announcement that Mclvor- 
Tyndall, the celebrated English ex- 
ponent of the science of palmistry, was 
in the city, at once attracted scores of 
people to his parlors in the Spalding to 
have their palms read by an expert. 
Mclvor-Tyndall finds the same Intelli- 
gent interest in his work here as he finds 
in the larger cities. Already he has had 
to make arrangements to prolong his 
stay, to accommodate the numbers who 
w Ish to consult him. 

Palmistry is not a luxury for the 
rich alone. It Is of inestimable value 
to the man or woman who will seri- 
ously heed its revelations and learn 
their future possibilities. Often the 
slight fault of today t>ecomes the vice 
of tomorrow, and what now seems a 

ed. but

Houso Commitioo Approvos tho 
Moasuro Without Material Chanco. 

Washington. March 30.— The houfc 

committee on naval affairs today ap- 
proved the naval appropriation bill and 
directed its report to the house. Several 
efforts were made to change the bill as 
heretofore practically agreed upon, but 
no material alterations were made. As 
the bill will be reported, It provides for 
two battleships, three armored cruis- 
ers and three protected cruisers of the 
dimensions heretofore given, and armor 
plate for the ships of the Maine class, 
now urgently In need of armor, is au- 
thorized at a price not exceeding $545 
per ton. The proposition for a govern- 
ment armor factory was again brought 
forward today and caused animated 
discussion, but no conclusive action 
was taken. The effort was also re- 
newed to secure the constiuction of <ine 
or more of the new ships in government 
yards, but the matter did not reach a 
vote. The bill carries approximately

Contraot ForLumbir. 

The board of public works this morn- 
ing let the contract for lumber for 
the maintenance department to A. H. 
Burg. His bid was the lowest of a 
large number received, and under the 
lontract he agrees to furnish 450,000 feet 
of lumber at $15 per 1000 feet. 

The members of the board went out to 
Lakeside this morning and made a per- 
sonal investigation of the property to 
be damaged by the proposed opening of 
Jefferson street from Twenty-second to 
Forty-fourth avenues east. This matte: 
is not yet In the hands of the board, but 
probably will be by next Monday even-

a serious misfortune, which might be 
.tvoided If known and guarded against 
in time. 

That past experiences and events are 
distinctly marked in the hand no one 
who will give the subject intelligent 
investigation can deny. Is it not, there- 
fore, reasonable to suppose that the 
future may also be diagnosed from the 
same source? 

The skilled physician, through his 
knowledge of his science. Is able to de- 
tect the germs of a disease long before 
it becomes apparent to those not versed 
in its symptoms. So also the skilled 
palmist, through his knowledge of his 
science, is able to discern in the mark-

which are Invisible to the uninitiated.

Re=engagement of the Favorites 


Is Required By Resolution le 
Put Them Out By Satur- 
day Night. 

The inevitable conflict between the 
city and the Duluth T^^lephone com- 
pany is close at hand. By a resolution 
passed by the council sometime ago the 
old company is given notice that if it 
does not remove its 'phones and wires 
from the city hall tomorrow, the board 
of public works will remove the appar- 
atus. At the ofRces of the company 
this morning it was said that the mat- 
ter had scarcely been considered and it 
was not known whether the 'phones 
would be removed by the Bell people 
or not. The board of public works, 
however, is a little more specific and 
interested and announces that if the 
company fails to remove its instru- 
ments by Monday, the city electrician 
will be turned loose on the work. 

April 15 is the date set by the council 
for the removal of all its poles and 
wires from the streets. The company 
has not taken any steps to heed the 
warning, and it is now an impossi- 
l)ility for it to remove the piant in that 
time. It is when this comes ui) that 
the war will be on, and it has long been 
rumored that while the city apparently 
has the whip hand, the Bell people have 
a long distance connection with a 
moth-eati'n suprtme court decision, by 
which they hope to continue to do busi- in Duluth. notwithstanding the 
t'Xpiration of the franchise. 

"Theie ha.c been some talk of the city 
quietly turning a large force fif men 
loose with axes if the company ne- 
glects to comply with the council's 
ultimatum, but this does not Ipeem 
probable. As a safeguard against this, 
however, it is predicted that on or be- 
fore April l."» there will be an injunction 
proceeding brought to restrain the city 
from removing the old company's sys- 
tem by force. 

The council resolution ordering the 
company out of the city was passed 
Feb. 1.3 last by a unanimous vote as i 

"Be it resolved by the common coun- 
cil of the city of Duluth that the Du- 
luth Telephone company be hereby no- 
tified and required on or before April 
l.";. to remove from all of the streets, 
avenues, alleys and public grounds of 
the city of Duluth, its telephone poles, 
and telephone wires, and to using 
the said streets, avenues and alleys for 
the purpose of carrying on its telephone

Judf • Ensign's Ruling In Case 
McDonald vs. Stubler. 

Judge Ensign has filed his findings in 
the case of Samuel McDonald against 
Amelia Stubler, involving a somewhat 
complicated dispute over some property 

sold at the forfeited tax sale a year ago. 
The property is the neV* of section 20-58- 
19. and it was jiurchased at the tax sale 
by Charles McGillis. Next day Jacob 
Stubler, agent for Ametia Stubler, came 
up to pay for it, accompanied by McGil- 
lis. Stubler objected to paying for it 
l>ecause the tax certificate ran to McGil- 
lis. whereas Stubler claimed that Mc- 
Gillis had purchased it for Mr. Stubler. 
McGillis then agreed that the tax deed 
should be made out to Mrs. Stubler. 
though the auditor said that it might 
not l>e regular, and it was si made out. 
I^ater McGillis appeared and said that 
the deed should have run to him, and ."^e 
got another deed, which he filed, anil 
later he sold the property to McDonald. 
The suit was to determine which of the 
two deeds was the proi>er one. Judge 
Ensign holds that as McGillis agreed to 
trie deed being first made to Mrs. Stubler 
that .settled it. and he hilds. further, that 
the second deed is void.

No Printed Lists of Insurance 

Tariffs on Hulls This 



Is the Invention of a Chicago 
Captain— Lumber Char- 
ters Reported. 

Chlcaso, March ;;0. — It is practically 
.settled thai Ihcri; will he no printed lists 
t«f insurance tarlfTs on hulls this year, 
;:s ha.^ been the custom heretofore, but 
that the matter of a rate will be a pri- 
vate one between the interested parties. 
This dues not mean that any cutting of 
rates is likely. On the contrary, it is 
Kcncrally con:':'ded that the American 
and foreign cumiianies have a ddinitc 
iinclerslandinsT, and that advances in 
special cases are more prolnble than 
concessions'. As a rule, however, it is 
the imjircssion in well posted ciiclc^; 
that then- will be little departure from 
I lie Koneral s^-ale of rates jirevailiiiK last

One of llu' new dcv'ces that will b-

.ind lessees, as well as by shippers, is th" 
[iortable hoist which luis just been pat- 
( ntcd by t'apt. C. H. Sinclair of Chi- 
i .ipo. By its use a vessel can be light- 
ered oit a beach i>r out of a shallow 
channel in half the time nquired l» 
bring a wrecking outfit even from a near 
by point. As many of the accidents oc- 
cur at points remote from effective 
wreckinp apparatus, the new device, 
which can be carried in small s|)ace. 
Itromises to be very generally adopted 
by vessel owners and carried on all of 
the boats having their own steam. A 
six-inch steel i)eam of T shape, with 
telescope steel supports and patent ap- 
paratus for handling the buckets, forms 
I he framework of the hoist. The carg.> 
can l)e carrietl out at the rate of a to;i 
at a time and can be manipulated so 
rapidly that even the largest ore carrier 
can be eased up very quickly.

estimates shipments of fully 3,000,000 tons 
of ore from the port of Maniuetle this 
year, his llgures being based on a ciirefui 
estimate of the probable output of every 
mine on the Marquette range this season. 
Similar estimates, covering all live rangts 
of Lake Superior iron districts in the 

states of Michigan. Minnesota and Wi.-<- 
eonsin, show probable shipments pi 20,- 
iNHi.iHiO tt)ns this year, or more than double 
the largest previous annual production of 
any year previous to 1W5. In my judgment. 
this year's iron ore output of Lake Supe- 
rior mines will unquestionably yield, ami 
very likelv exceed 20,tH«).(K*'). Horace J.

The de|>osii of mohawkite at the Mihawk 
muiu is being opened with a view of as- 
teitainlng its extent and j>r"l>iil>lt" value. 
NN'here opened by the cross cut the vein 
was about tlfte« n Inches wide. At a dis- 
tance of twelve feet which has been 
r« ached, in the hanging wall the vein ha;- 
iiK reased to two feet in width. Of course 
il is imjv>s.>-ible to say how deep th.> de- 
Itiisit mav run. as it is opened at only one 
level. The hi^h percentage of nickel— 7 
pet- cent, toKetber with 01 per cent copper 
-makes mohawkite a most valuable nnd.

A new 10-drlll Ingersol & Sergeant coni- 
juessor has Rone into commission at the 
Ciiampion mine. This compressor is !.>- 
e.ited near K shaft and with the two smad 
;; and ."i-drill eompre.>ssors previously in- 
stalled furnisht^s power for eighteen drill.-'. 
Kisht drills have been openinc the lo<ie 
at the Champion mine. This number will 
slmitly be increased, now that the cnjiai - 
itv pe'rmits It. Drifts have been stariol 
at three of the four shafs beins sunk ai 
this mine. At shaft C drifting has been in 
progress for the last week. They are 
sinking this shaft below the first level. 

At D thev have begun to drive a drift 
at the flrFt level, and at shaft E they have 
been drlftinj? at the 200-foot level for the 
l)ast two weeks. 

The Champion mine now looks fully a.- 
well as it has at anv period since the 
mine was first opened. There is good 
stamp copper in abundance and plenty of 
mass work. The lode has been opened for 
a distance of about 4000 feet, and at every 
place where it has been tapped has proved 
oniformlv rich. It is extremely improb- 
able this rich showing extending; 
oxer such a scope of ground will be ex- 
hausted at a depth of lOOO or even y«Oi 
feot below the surface. 

Two new hoisting engines arrived on 
the location recently for installation at 
I) and F: shafts, and the one for D is now 
being installed. These are Fraser & Chal- 
nu-rs hoists, with 7-foot drums and will 
lift roc k fr<mi a depth of r>On feet. 

The Copper Hange corps of surve.vors 
hris complei*»d the rtinniiiK of thrt^e pre- 
liininarv lines between Hancock and c'llu- 
met. pilncipall.v l)y wa.v of Lake Linden, 
.ind the surveyors Iiave been laid off 
pending the decision of the officers of the 
ei.inpanv as to whl< h line to build on. H 
is exiiected that this will be itttlid at 
lhf> forthcoming annual meetlns of thr 
f .inipanv. One of the lines run lies on the 
south bide of the Hancock & Calumet 
between Rlplev and Dollar Bay and for 
some distance runs directly across a bulge

to the main shor* again near Dollar Bay. 

The Isle Royaie wine instead of starting 
a new shaft between No. 1 and No. 2 will, 
it is said, open the old Huron workings 
this summer. The mine wil be in .good 
shape to suppv rock for three heads when 
Its new stamp mill is completed at the 
end of the year.

in this city by federal authorities for 
alleged non-payment of duties. The

company, to be carried tn Walla Walla. 
Yesterday, Deputy United States Mar- 
shal Pugii received instructions from the 
customs ofTicials at Port Townsend to

Deputy Pugh served notice on the rail- 
way company that the goods must re- 
main in the warehouse here.

The Buisest Place io Town 

Do you wonder at this assertion? Or 
have you been coming to the store ? If you 
have, weVe no need telling you this. If not, 
you should know it. We do not tell you 
this as a matter of brag or bluster, but sim- 
ply to acquaint you with store facts — the

Sunday Next is April 1st. 

And Easter, but two weeks off, 
takes time you know to get your 
Suit or Jacket just right, 
especially if there are many al- 
terations to be made, and what 
garment doesn't have some.? 
That's what we've got this fitting 
room with the several fitters here 
for, so's to try and not dissapoint 
you; we've doubled the sewing 
people, and the sales people, and 
we are just as busy as ever; 
either everybody is buyingmoreor 
we are getting more everybodies. 
We hate to keep saying "New 
Suits" all the time and yet, we 
must, or not 
let you know 
the best part 
of the store 

new Suits and 
new Jackets 
came this 
morning and 
more than 
that the day 
before but 
only to fill up 
the gaps and to keep newness 
before you. 

A very good Wool Covert 
Cloth Jacket can be had for 

And a very good Wool Covert 
Cloth Suit at $8.50. 

As good as any store can sell at 
those figures, in fact women folks 
who want to pay about that price 
buy ours in preference to any 
about town at the same price or 
slightly more, but these are only 
starting points. We've beautiful 
Homespun Suits here at $12.50 
that will surprise you, and fine 
Silk lined Suits at $22.50 that 
tailors will not attempt to make 
for less than $35 or $40; of 
course at $25.00, $27.50, $30.00 
$32.00 and up we are in our 
element. We are told that Gar- 
ments such as ours are not seen 
elsewhere but here. 

French Neckwear. 

The new fluffy and fancy cre- 
ations from the gayest and brightest 
home of art are here. But they 
aren't as fluffy and fussy as our 
own American Neckwear. 

Most of them are plain enough, 
but very pretty, and rather simple 
compared with the extravagances 
we're accustomed to expect from 

The new feature is an applique of 
Cluny or Chantilly lace which ap- 
pears constantly on the ends of 

There are stocks and long Ties 
that go twice around the neck and 
tie, made of Liberty silk and satin 
and taffeta; other Ties of Mousse- 
line de Sole and Chiffon with the 
ends always in contrast with the 
Tie, and very often pleated. 

But the plain stock, or stock with 
high points, and simple bows of the 
same material as the stock, are 
most worn and very practical. 

They are worn with tailor-made 
suits as well as for evening, and 
give the dash of color or white, that 
is so seldom seen, but adds so much. 
The French kinds are the most ex- 
pensive, $1.50 to $5.00. These In- 
clude all sorts of net and Chiffon 
effects, but the copies. American 
are just as good, possibly better and 
cheaper, 35c to $2.50. 

—With fringe, will be on sale tomor- 
row at 25c, and better at 35c. liut we 
have many swell ones at 50c. 65c and

Suff^ Co. 

Has Furnished the Democratic 
With a Most Power- 
ful Weapon. 

From The Horald 
Washinjffon Bureau. 

Washlngrton, March 30.— (Special to 
The Herald.) — A political observer of 
considerable prominence furni.shed for 
publication a few days ago the foHowliiK 
I interesting resume from a Washington 
city standDoint: 

GD.ssip as to the coming campaign is 
becoming more lively every day in 
Washington political circU's. It is rather 
unusual that there is little, if any, doubt 
that the presidency lies between two 
men. Nothing remains but th^ choice 
of vice presidential candidates. Both 
candidates should logically come from 
the Kast. preferably from New York. 
A number of names of New York ms 
have been suggested as possibilities for 
the Republican nomination and all have 
respectfully declined except Hon. Tim- 
othy Woodruff, who really .seems to want 

Kepresentatives Sulzer and Levy of 
New York have their kites up vsaiiini; 
for the p<jlitical lightning to strike, and 
both entertain ihe hjpe of being chosen 
as the running mate of W. J, Kiyan. 

As matters b.gin to shape themselves 
for the next campaign, It .seems that, 
with the exception of the two jiresld-.>n- 
tial candidates. It will not be the same 
as ii was last campaign. Tlie issu s 
must be different, and on issu's 
the battle will be fought in the East 
rather than in the West. With the couii- 
try on a gold standard ba.sis; with the 
refunding of the debt inaugurated anil 
paitly accomplished; with the organiza- 
tion »f new bank.-^, the issuing of mo;.- 
national bank currency, and ttie finau- 
eiul stability of the country, the p<is.-fibi!- 
iiy of overturning the financial syjrte.u 
is not regarded a.s worthy of mui'i 

N?\v i;--.';u( s are lying around in abuit- 
dano. While the J3emocrat.s have been 
.s('mewhat divided o.i the quf-stion of 

< .<parsion, they are a unit a.s to Im- 
perialism, and In their antagonism to 
the first of the ultra-imprriallstlc me.i- 
sures iiri.po;-<ed in congress — tfne P(^rto 
Kuan tariff bill— they have received the 
he.ijly support .md sympathy of tiic 

< vuntry. 

Til » T" p-fcr^.'k jiari" has rcceiv ! 
"\aluable assistance from the eneniv. 
First, the great bugaboo of free .=llver 
was laid low by the pa.ssage of the finan- 
<ial bill, and then the fur- 
nished thfir opponents a most powerful 
weapon in the form of thLs dista-stefui. 
uni'opuiar tarib' measure. It is no 
winder the TJepu'niican niernbera of con- 
.'zre^•s want tj adjourn as soon as pn.s- 
sible. Every day the ses.=iion is pro- 
I'ligcd the greater bec<">mes the danger 
->f furr.ishing tlie Democrats with addi- 
tional tampalgn materiaf. 

What is to be( ine of the Ni^aragu.M 

< .mal bill, the ship sub.= My bill, the bill 
Tor a Pacific cabl-^. the Hay-Pauncefo'.e 
treaty, the 8-hour law and many oth' :■ re.«. the pas.*age or defeat of which 
would have an influence on the cam- 
pa: urn? 

The members of the house committee 
«-.n interstate and foreign commerce .still 
cherish the hope of obtaining a discus- 
sion at least of the canal bill. Rut the 
bill controverts the Hay-Pauncefote 
treaty, and will not be nermitted to 
pass until that matter is diseased of. 
and it looks .is if t ^-av bt i)-:>rmitt«'; 
to die peaceably in tMe committee ow 
f'lrelgn relations. 

The Pacific cable bill will scarcely bo- 
come .'I law. because t'le administration 
di>es not wish to he placed in the posi- 
tion >f adopting the Populislic iden of 
government ownfrsh'p or of defenilin-T 
the granting of a subsid.v and a mon- 
"P(d.v to a private corporation. 

Tl e ship siibsid.v bill cannot be passed 
this so;--sion, bei-ause the Republican 
members of congrefs want nothing addi- 
tional to explain on the stump next fall. 
The contest over the bill for a govern- 
ment of Porto Rico win be pouring oil 
on the flames, yet it Is diffliiilt to see 
h">w the Republican party can face t£ie 
people in November without providing 
a civil government for tnat island. 

In this connection the discussion of 
the management of the next campaign 
l>ecomes especially pertinent. Those 
apostles of pure Democracy who under- 
t-iok a purse and scrip campaign in I^JC 
had no more chance of success than the 
deluded children v.ho set fort'a to free 
Jerusalem during the crusades. LiKe 
Peter the Hermit, Mr. Bryan has con- 
tinued to oreach the deliverance of the 
CJolden City, but campaigns, like battles, 
are not won by t.nlk. He is by no means 
averse to a reconciliation with the old 
leaders, and the prospect of an active 
participation in the campaign by sue! 
old wheel-horses as Gorman. Hill, Whit- 
ney and others has isevived the Eastern 
I)emo<-racy and given the whole part.v 
new life. 

These men, however, will not consent 
to serve. They want to lead. Nor will 
they submit to the dictation of "Bloody 
Hridles" Waite, Altgeld and others of 
that kidney. Each member of this tri- 
umvirate has been a presidential possi- 
bility, two have been in the senate and 
the third in the cabinet, and two have 
managed campaigns before. Su« h men 
must either themselves control or con- 
trol through others. 

The rumors regarding the retirement 
of Senator Jones as chairman of t'-'o 
national committee have been revived. 
No one disputes the ability of Mr. Jones 
or the high respect entertained for him, 
but many are of the opinim that he is 
far from the ideal campaign manager. 
Tiiere appears to lie good ground for 
the impression that he may be retired 
at the beginning of the campaign, and. 
as already mentioned, there is some talk 

of Mr. Gorman as his successor. 

• « « 

There will be more Important and in- 
teresting developments at the Kansas 
City national Democratic convention 
and also at the Philadelphia national 
Republican convention. There will be 
a considerable inferest developed re- 

garding the selection of vice presiden- | 
lial candidates at both Kansas City and j 
Philadelphia, but the fight at both 
places will come over the adoption of 
the party platforms. At Kansas Cit.v 
there will be a contest regarding the 
plank which will deal with the silver 
question. In the East the leaders who 
will go to Kansas City as delegates 
will favor non-aclion regarding the 
contest that has been going on for so 
many years over the recognition of the 
white metal. This Issue will not cut 
very much of a figure at Philadelphia. 
This \\ill be due to the fait that the 
jiresenl Republican congress has jtassed 
a currency bill which has been approved 
ity the president for a single gold 

The advocates for silver on the basis 
of 16 to 1 may or may not be in the 
majority at City. The Issues, 
however, seem to foreshadow that one of 
the leading planks In the Democratic 
national platform adopted at the Kan- 
sas City convention will be favorable 
to the free coinage of silver at the ratio 
of 16 to 1. The strongest advocate fur 
making silver the leading issue at this 
Convention will be Mr. Bryan, who will 
without doubt head the national Re- 
publican Democratic ticket this year. 
There will be another contest at Kan- 
sas City ovc-r the adoption of the plank 
inserted in the recent Nebraska state 
convention which had the sanction, be- 
fore it was passed, of Mr. Bryan. This 
was the referendum plank. This plank 
has given Mr. Bryan more trouble than 
anything else since he conceded the 
right of the Nebraska fusionlsts to 
make it an issue not only in that state 
but in the country at large. 

The Kansas City convention will alfo 
have considerable troultle over the ex- 
pansion issue. Mr. Bryan opposes a 
plank of this kind. Many Eastern 
Democrats favor It. There will be a 
fight In the convention over this as 
well as other issues of leading import- 
ance and there is a bare po.-sibiiity 
that Mr. l-ryan will be able, though ali- 
sent form the convention, to dictate 
the policies which he desires to have 
incorporated in the platform upon 
which he will stand as the advocate for 
the three and all other planks agreed 
upon by the delegates who assemble at 
Kansas City July 4. next. 

The situation in Philadelphia on June 
10 next will not be entirely satisfactory 
to the Itejiublicans. A great deal of 
trouljle ha.s been stirred up l»y the R-- 
publican leaders over the Porto Riean 
iiill. It may be an olistacle in their 
pathway at Philadelphia. Time will 
tell, howevt-r, just what the delegates 
at this convention wiil decide upon. tliC silver question will be ovei - 
;-!hadowed at Philadelphia is a cer- 
tainty and it will be with the advice 
and consent of President McKinley, 
Chairman Hanna and other Republican 

It seems impossible that the dele- 
gates at the Philadelphia convention 
will attempt to deal with the sllvei- 
question In any way .satisfactory to tlie 
Republican party. All this Is because 
the present Republican congress has 
passed the single gold standard Idll and 
the president has approved the same. 
Silver, therefore, will not li.gure as a 
luomlnent Issue in the Republican plat- 
form In 11*00. There is a possibility. 
Jiowever, that I'residt nt McKinUy s 
purpose of making his war policy tiie 
leading issue of 1000 will fail. He has h »d 
so much opposition in dealing with 
Porto Rico, Caba and the Philippine;' 
that a portion of the delegates v.hieh 
nominate him for the preskh ncy will 
not favor all the issues outlined by hitn 
and which he hop-^s will be incorpo.-- 
nted in the platform of l?><i>. 
M.ij. McKinliy. however, is a very d-^- 
termined man, hardly ever permits 
views antagonistic to him to cotne tv 
the fore front in politics anil may dom- 
inate all the delegates at Philadelphia, 
thereby forcing upon them all his idei 
r.'garding tlie Issues in the presidenti.i! 
I ampaign. Whether or not the voters 
will stand by them next November re- 
mains to be seen. This brief history of 
the i-urposPs of Mr. Rryan and Mr. Mc- 
Kinley. the leading factors in the na- 
tional campaign this year, wlll^ have 
to be settled by the voters.

That One of th3 Citargss Against 
Capt. Qemlr.g. 

Washingtcn, March :vp.-.\Uhough th' 
officials of ihe war department are dlsi.i- 
clined to discuss Ihe character of Cajit. 
Demlng, it Is admitted that his arrest i- 
merely preliminary to his trial by court- 
martial for violations of the articles of 
war. His case arises out of an escapvde 
on the Pacific coast while en route to 
Manilla for aasiKument to duty. It is 
stated that while he m.i.\' have mlsappr<:,-

volved is less than $10^> and is amply se- 
cured bv his bond of iL'n.'iOi*. The gravest 
feature "of his case Is an allegation ihit 
he forged the name of 
account for il.'di and se, 
and apTM' pri.iled it lo his own purposes. 

Oen. Sliafter reported the m.itter to the 
war department and was directed to con- 
vene a court-martial for the trial of the 

Cant. Deming belongs to a respecial>ie 
family of Buffn'.o and hitherto has borne

reputation has been excellent. 


Motion to Strike Out Porto Rican 
Tariff Defeated. 

Washington, March 3'>.— .\ direct vote 
was taken by the senate yesterday after- 
noon on the motion to strike from the 
Porto llico bill the provision levying 15 
per cent of the Dlngley law on I'orto 
Rican products. The propositLjn was de- 
feated by a vote of 16 to SJ. While liie 
vot.> is regarded as preaauing the pas- 
sage of the pending measure it Is not rt- 
gard»-il as Indicating the final vote on 
thi- bill. Both the Wi^ccnsin senators 
voted against the motion. The Ml!ine:?uta 
senators. Davis and Nelson, were absent 
at the time the vote wa.s taken. 

The house passed the army appropria- 
tion bill. As passed, the bill is only slight- 
ly ir.odiiied from the form In which it 
came from the committee, tme of ine 
amendments adopttd opens the Soldiers'

Denver, Col., March .TO.— Mrs. Frances 
M. Wolcott, who was divorced from Sen- 
ator E. O. Wolcoit In th(? district court 
March 6, found the proceedings that in- 
directly led up to . the separation very 
costly. It has resulted In the loss of her 
magniflcent collection of jewelry, valued 
at between $3O,0uO and JIO.CJO. 

The sepaiallon of Mr. and Mrs. Wolcoit 
took place more than a year ago, when the 
announcement came from Washington 
that Mrs. Wolcott would ask for a di- 
vorce. The specific act. were not dl- 
\ulsed that made recourse to the divorce 
courts necessary, the convenient phraae 
ii.eompatibiilty of lempeiament being 
used, but as tills Is nut l^Kal ground for 
divorce In Colorado It wat, agreed that 
d' .scrtion should be alleged on the part of 
the senator. But a dlvoice on that ground 
cannot be had unill after the expiration 
of one year from the time of tlesertlon. 
As it was a perfunctory matter, merely 
a question ot getting awav from each 
other, be remained In Washlncton and 
Airs. \Vol(.-ott journeyed to Europe lo wail 
for the time to pass. 

Her jewels went with her. She visited 
P.irls and In that gay capital they were 

Mrs. Wolcott's collection of jewels was 
extensive, being a growth of years and 
the expenditure of great sums, by present 
and by purchase. It Is her fortune lo have 
been connected with persons of great af- 
iluence in all the rclaiioii.s of life. She 
was a Mettalf by birib, u veiy wealthy 
family of New York, and was first married 
to Lyman K. Bass, a very wealthy citizen 
of Buffalo, N. Y., who was elected to con- 
gross. It in Washington -ho met Mr. 
Wolcott. whose wife she became after Mr. 
Ba.vs' death. Senator Wolcott's wealht 
Bass' death. Senator Wolcott's wealth 
lection of jewels as a Metcalf, continued it 
as a Bass and completed It as a Wolcott. 
As said, Mrs. Wolcott took her jewel.? 
with her to Paris. They were carefully 
packed In a si)eclally constructed port- 
manteau, and wherever she went the 
portmanteau went. She trusted them to uo 
maid or lacke.v. Even when she went 
slioppiiiR she look them with her. But 
Mrs. Wolcott Is troubled with absent- 
mindedness and one unlucky day when she 
was out trhopping she left the portman- 
teau of jewels in tlie vebKie »vhich drove 
her to her liciiol. The vehlr>le w.i.s one of 
tl)0.<o elegant pub!!f counts for \>h*cii 
I'aris Is noted and was driven by the. reg- 
ular Parisian jehu. Scon after arriving 
at the hotel. Mis. Wolcott bethought her- 
sels of her jewels and it came upon her 
with crushing force that she bad left the 
portniHiiteau in the coupe. She made a 
lusli for the entrance of the hotel, but the 
jehu with Ids carriage was gone and so 
also were the jewels. The Paris poliie 
were notified and diligent search was 
made, and while the haekman was found 
and arrested, the jewels were out of reaeli. 
The driver had quickly examined hi.i 
find In the coupe and acted with prompt- 
ness. The jewels were on the way ti> 
London before he was arreste<l and there 
lest in the mazes of the international e>s- 
t.m of thievery which exists In Europ*^. 
The t Xpert detectives of London ami 
I'arls were liaffied In their pursuit of 
i hem. The driver was duly sentenced 
for his theft and that is all the consolation 
that Mrs. Wolcott got. The theft was not 
made public. 

rdrs. Wolcoit was Inconsolable for a 
time, for her gems were endeared tn her 
bv recollections that surrounded them 
apart from their liilrinsic value and 
be.iuty. Each jewel w,?s brilliant In its 
way— earrings, brooches, bracelets, rings, 
stomachers, sprays, coronets— many dia- 
monds of the purest water and "other 
stones. In the collection, loo, wt>re Mrs 
Wolcott's most beautiful emeralds. *ald 
to bo the finest possessed by any Ameri- 
can woman. Over the loss of these she ei--- 
peclally grieved. She has given up all 
hope now of ever reRaining her gems. 

The fact of this great loss Mrs. Wolcott 
communicated to a few friends in Denver 
when she visited the city to be pres'^nt 
at the divorce proceedlnE;s. Many hrnl 
seen the jewels, but their svmpaihy. whre 
appreciated, was not needed, for Mrs. Wol- 
cott had become .accustomed lo her loss 
and she is moreover given to cheerf nines.-. 
Thus Mrs. Wolcott voluntarily lost her 
a United States senator, anil In- 
her Jewels and gems. Whether 
she will have the he.irt lo beijln another 
collection remains to be seen. She ha.- 
meat wealth In her own name and also 
great erpeetalions. The senator, by agree- 
ment d'.ilv ratified by the court, will pay 
her $Tr.(10 a year aliihony. This might be 
nin money for jewels and in a way aven;;e 
Mrs. Wolcott's loss occasioned by the 
journey which the exigencies of the dl- 
voice ocei sloned. 

Tn Denver's smart circles all the sympa- 
ihv it with Mrs. AVolcctt. who was w^ll 
liked here. The senator is blamed. The 
remembrance of the Cleveland wldov; for 
wliose hand he and the son of Senator 
Hann.T were aspirants is recalled and the 
f.Tct that the senator was bested by Mt. 
ll'inra has been received somewhat with 
satisfaction— a sort of compensatory tit 
for tat. 

Mrs. "Wolcott has gone to Brooklyn, X. 
Y.. to live and Is at the present the real 
bead of her mother's establishment, which 
Is one of the most inaKnifleenl In the City 
of Churches, renniring some thirty serv- 
ants to care for It.

St. Paul. March ««.— "A Yenuine 
Yentlemen" company, which recently 
played In Duluth, reached St. Paul Wed-

stranded, being without any apparent 
worldy possessions, save what they wore 
and could carry in their valises, and 
temporarily prevented from earning a 
histrionic livelihood. 

The scenery car of the company wa.s 
burned Wednesday morning, between 
Superior and Ashland, on the Omaha

all their scenery and car baggage, leav-

carried in their grips.

Spring Styles Shown 

Viennese Fashions Compare Favorably 
With Those of Paris — Charming Crea- 
tions By DrecoU, the Great Dressmaker* 

Dainty Toilet Accessories* 

Paris, March 20.— (Special to The 
Herald.)— With spring .styles in full .sway 
and a wardrobe well supplied with 
cloth tallor-madcs, wraps, jackets and 
all the auxiliary so dear to the feminine 
heart for the between seasons, madame's 
Interest next turns to the summer frock 
and things to wear in the mountains 
and on the seashore, clothes that will 
harmonize with the ripe beauty of tfte 
summer landscape and will defy the 
penetrating heat of old Sol. Charming 
materials and dt. signs and colors have 
long be.^n offered in the big fashion 
emporiums, and now the complete 
models, fresh from the hands of th.i 
great dressmakers, show such an end- 
less variety of becoming styles that 
choice is made easy. Vienna prides her- 
.self upon standing on an even footing 
with Paris in all that appertains to fash- 
ion, though her modistes and tailors have 
developed a style all their own to suit 
the dainty blond beauty of the V^iennese 

The gown that i.i illustrated today is 
made for the Archduchess Stephanie, the 

contrasting color is supplied by a very 
niirri>w bias fold l.ild on the inside of 
the lichu and marking the line which 
separates it from tht' white tulle collar 
and vest. This fold is of bright cerise 
taffeta embroidered with small white 
silk Dolka dots. 

The toque that matches this gown 
consists of ma.Nses of blue tulle almost 
covered by the garniture of white and 
purple graj)es with beautifully shade.l 
ftfliage and delicate green stems and 

Two striking tendencies of the latest 
summer fashions are the short elbow- 
sleeves and the collarless low-necked 
bodices. Both fancies are becoming to 
most people and lend a cool airiness 
to the summer dress, which the high 
stock collar and long sleeves of the 
past sea.sons certainly lacked. Tunics, 
overskirts and reding<<tes are very 
fashionable, particularly when cam- 
posed of lace, a fabric which proves 
its long-lived popularity by competing 
successfully with ail new devices placed 
on the market by enterprising manufac- 

A very distingue gown is remarkable 
for some very new features. If has a 


ner applique of lace, while another, 
more delicate, has a collar of fine Irish 
gU'pure. closing lnvi.%ibly at the back. 
The cravat is of mousseline de sole, the 
pleated folds of which are knotted and 
descend below in two pointed ends, dec- 
orated with an insertion matching the 
collar, and a small flounce of mousse- 


Tht Eton Is Said to Bo tho Proforrod 

The Eton is the preferred jacket form 
for spring. It Is omnipresent. It makes 
its appearance in cheviot, broadcloth, 
serge, homespun, Venetian, velvet and 
taffeta. Sometimes it is Quaker-like in 
its absolute simplicity, again it is the 
most frivolous little coat imaginable, 
bedecked and hefurl>elowed with laces, 
braidings, stitchings. strappings, satin 
motifs, heiroglyphics of chenille and 
silk, metallic thread embroidery and 
big ornamental buttons. 

The fancy Jackets that accompany 
tailor suits are nearly all waist length: 
a few tails and basques are shown, but 
they do not promise to have a vogue. A 
happy compromise between tailor-made 
severity and dressmakers' frivolity is a 
coat with sharp points in front, a mere 
suggestion of a point in the back, a 
high collar and square revers. It Is 
untrimmed, Ijut the cut is odd and very 
smart, and the slimmest and primmest 
of women could wear it without l>elng 
made to look stiff or "set." A num- 
ber of the modish cloth gowns for 
spring have no Jacket at all. The bodice 
is fashioned something on the lines of 
a blouse, tucked or plaited and stitched, 
tltting the back closely and pouched a 
little in front. At the waist line there 
is preferably a finish of a. narrow belt, 
and a collar which shapes into revers 
completes the decoration. 

One sees EJtons in numberless vari- 
ations, but the majority of the models 
shown come to the waist line in the 
back and lengthen considerably in 
front. The spade front, which, al-

widow of the Ill-fated Rudolf. Crown 
Prince of Austria. Liberty satin of a 
new design, showing a fanciful royal 
blue pattern on a white ground, con- 
stitutes the skirt, which closely adjusts 
itself to the figure and shows the in- 
creasing flare towards the hem. and 
ends in a dip at the back. It is made up 
over a drop skirt of blue taffeta, edged 
with a deep pleated ruffle of the same 
goods. The tunic of liberty satin is 
pointed in front as well as at the back, 
and Is bordered with a flounce of blue 
mousseline de sole decorated with two 
narrow double biases of mousseline 
and edged with a narrow silk fringe of 
the same brlRht royal blue. The tunic 
closes invisibly at the back. Thp liber- 
ty satin of the bodice is stretched seam- 
lessly at the back over a tight founda- 
tion of blue taffeta and closes in the 
left underarm seam by means of hooks 
and eyes. The graceful fichu is of blue 
mou.sseline de sole finished with a ruffle 
of the same like the one on the tunic, 
and ends in a soft drapery on the left 
side. There is a high collar and vest of 
white satin veiled entirely with fine 
silk net, gathered into tiny ruffled tucks. 
Narrow black velvet ribbon forms the 
finishing touch and is held at the collar 
and on the vest with tiny strass buckles. 
The elbow sleeves of liberty satin are 
ti^t and are decorated with full ruffles 
of blue mousseline de sole. A bit jf 

upon which is mounted pleated mauve 
mousseline de sole. The principal char- 
princesse foundation of mauve taffeta, 
acteristic is a redingote of dark gray 
guipure, forming a short round zouave 
Jacket in front and ending in two low 
sash-like tails at the back. These, as 
well as the undulating border, consist of 
exquisite applications of fine black 
Chantllly lace, the floral design of which 
is accentuated with an embroidery of 
metal thread and fine colored 
spangles. Further appliques of this 
kind extend along the V-shaped decolh t- 
age at the back and along the shoulders 
of the short tight elbow sleeves. In 
front the decolletage is square and fin- 
ished with a ruche of the mauve mousse- 
line held with a band of purple velvet, 
tied Into bowknots and caught with 
strass buckles. The sleeves of guipure 
are unlined and are also finished with a 
mousseline ruche and purple velvet 
bows. A hat. matching this picturesque 
costume, is of mauve mousseline, wound 
and twisted over a wire frame, and over 
the upturned brim is mounted a large 
purple pansy with delicately tinted foli- 
age. Another pansy Alls out the brim 
over the hair. 

Dainty neckwear continues to be worn 
with unabated popularity, and new de- 
signs are ever welcome. One shows a 
^*H9hable scarf of cream colored bat late 
with a narr-tw insertion and small cor- 

though not new. is more exaggerated 
than during the winter, appears on 
many of them. 

Every wardrobe in preparation for 
summer has a white skirt which will 
take the place of the navy blue or black 
skirt so much seen during previous 
summers. Some of these skirts are 
simply of cloth or serge, but more 
elaborate ones are of wool, satin faced 
or creped. silk crepe, poplin or alpaca. 
The white crepe which comes with dots 
of black embroidered over it is especial- 
ly swell with the new black silk coats, 
which are a decided novelty. Indeed, 
if you want a really stunning combin- 
ation in the tailoring department, you 
cannot do better than to get a white 
cloth skirt or some tint so nearly white 
that the effect is almost the same, and 
a black taffeta silk coat. The skirt 
should be made with the prevalent 
plaits, and the coat may be an Eton, a 
bolero trimmed with stitched bands of 
Itself, or. what Is more swell than either, 
a close-fitting Ijodice ending at the 
waist line. It is very fancy in design, 
the upper portion being In the f«irm of 
a finely tucked yoke, and the lower, 
from the bust down, in a series of ver- 
tical bands ending in at the waist line, 
with a sort of fan effect. They are 
Joined together the entire length, ex- 
cept below the waist line. 

A pretty effect, which is sure to ob- 
tain favor in the country and for moun-

tain wear, is the use of the bright Eng- 
lish military red coats with white 
skirts. Eton models, in white serge, are 
shown for yachting and the seashore, 
some have trappings of blue, others 
are trimmed with white mohair braid, 
and sometimes with white moire. Pearl 
or gilt buttons are used on them. 

Etons and boleros of velvet, with 
sirts of a lighter shade of the same 
«-olor, have already made their appear- 
ance, and we shall see more of them 
at* the season advances. Quite new 
this season, and extremely stylish, are 
the Etons of taffeta silk and of peau 
de sole. In some the silk is corded or 
pleated, in others it is quite plain. The 
Eton Jacket of tucked taffeta is ahvay.- 
extremely effective. The tucks are put 
ill either on the bias or horizontally. 

A number of the Etons of taffeta and 
of peau de sole are trimtned with open 
work applique, and the effect is very 
rich and elegant. 

An(»ther favorite of fashion this 
spring is the long silk <-oat. These 
coats are lioth tight-lilting and mad'- 
with loose fnmts. and some have double 
and single capes, trimmed with fiat 
»>ands of lace or rows of velvet ribbon. 
Th«-y were principally designed foi 
driving coats, and will be in the height 
of fashion for traveling in summer. 
They are to be worn, however, for many 
different occasions. Black is supposed 
to be the correct color, but it is said 
there are also to be silk coats .nnd 
cloaks in many other different shades, 
light gray, light tan and blue and 
purple. The fashion is somewhat ec- 
centric and conspicuous and very

to be the rule, beautiful as are the 
gauze wings and gem spangled aigrette 
and plume decorations. The flowers are 
placed either as a wreath aljout the 
coiffure or a single blossom or few 
rtowers are set well forward, a little to 
one side. 

Roses seem preferred above all else 
for the hair. Nothing is prettier for 
young girls than a single rose nestling 
against low coils. Tiny wreaths made 
of small blossoms and green leaves, 
such as trailing arbutus, wood anemone, 
appleblossoms, etc.. are equally becom- 
ing. Many girls pin down their locks 
with gold or silver prongs topped with 
some minute, colored device. Nothing 
has such a place in the young girl's 
heart as the hairpin decorated with 
dragon-flies, green enameled shamrocks 
and luck clovers, and a thousand other 
wee figures that convert the new hair- 
pin box into a veritable casket of infini- 
tesimal curiosities. Just as many of 
these prongs as are necessary are used 
to settle the coiffure nicely, and in

Fashions for children are quite as 
varied and atltractive as the grown-ui» 
confections this season, and as the cot- 
ton fal)rlcs are prettier than ever lie- 
fore there is no reason why the little 
ones should not be prettily dressed even 
with the expenditure of very little 
money. Simplicity should be the 
golden rule for children's dresp. and yet 
the season's tendency toward extrava- 
gance Is alrmingly evident in this de- 
partment of fashion's fancies. Hats, 
coats and gowns are elaborated with 
stitchings and trimmings of various 
kinds to a price out of all proportion to 
the size. It is the price of these made- 
up garments that surprises you more, 
perhaps, than the abundant trimming, 
but there are no ends of dainty, simple 
things for children and there are simple 
models which can l)e easily copied at 

For little girls up to 8 years of age 
there is the same little gathered waist 
with a belt and short puffed sleeves 
wfirn with a guimpe. A bertha frill of 
lawn, pique or emliroidery finishes the 
neck, and the skirt is in straight 

l)readths hemmed, tucked and gathered 
into the belt. The skirl partially gored 
and tucked around the hips half-way 
down and matching the waist is a very 
good style for a child of eight years. 
The full waist, made with a sailor col- 
lar effect sloping down in front over a 
tucked white lawn yuke and tied with 
a knot and ends of silk, is also a very 
desirable style. This sort of collar with 
greater width appears in some of the 
little reefer coats, and in either case it 
is variously made of silk braid in tucks 
for half the width and hemstitched «m 
the edge, or of embroidered batiste with 
lace on the edge, tucked lawn and eni- 
iiroiderv. or of a contrasting color of

the soft, coarse threaded linen with 
drawn work decoration are also in or- 

p:verything in materials, except ex- 
pensive silks, laces and grenadines, are 
used for children's gowns, especially 
for the older girls. Nun's veiling, which 
may be tucked s<» prettily, are espe- 
cially popular, and light tan is decid- 
edly a favorite color. Gowns of this 
material made with vertical tucks all 
around the skirt flowing out from just

tucked bodice and sleeves. Made uj) 
over a contrasting colur in the lining

edged with lace of the same color, trim 
the hem of some of the tan veiling 
gowns. A full blouse waist, edged down 
either side of the front with the tiny 
ruffles falling over a tucked silk vest 
matching the lining in color, is a pretty 
style for a girl of 12 years. 

Foulards and India silks in small all- 
over designs and polka dots are made 
up into summer gowns for girls. and 
some of the skirts are shirred on three 
cords around the hips. Tunic over- 
dresses with a scalloped or pointed fin- 
ish around the edge, trimmed w-ith lace 
or rows of A'elvet ribbon falling over 
ruffles around the hem. are another 
style of skirt. Party dresses for young 
girls ar*' made of point d'esprit and or-

of lace straw threaded with l>lack vel-

plaitings. Large l)OWS of the new soft

The promoter of the expedition is Mr. 
Sireeier, the diamond merchant of Bond 
.street, who, after vainly endeavoring foi- 
twenty years to obtain the necessary 
rlg^ht/. hr.s at last se.ured a grr.nt of 
land from the Egyptian government, 
says the London Mail. In return Mr. 
Streeter has taken the Egyptian govern- 
ment as partner in a venture whivh he 
iK.pes will, be quite the Iriggest thing 
with which he has been as.sociated. 

"My first idea of getting emeralds 
emeralds from Eastern Egjpt." said Mr. 
St'eeter. "came to me from reading of 
Cleoratra. You may rememl>er that she 
is said to have been lavish in her l)e- 
stowal of the emeralds upon those wh.m 
she desired to show favor. I had al.«o 
read of the famous Jebel Zebara mines, 
and of the rich finds which they yielded 
to the early Egyptians. Subsequently I 
learned from a French gentleman that 
the Zebara was unquestinnalily rich in 
the previous stone, and 1 at once took 
steps to secure a grant of land. For 
twenty years I have been trying to ob- 
tain the necessary right. Iiut, owing to 
a variety of causes, without sueress. 

"Nuljar Pasha was so favorable to my 
scheme that he promised me soldiers to 
guard the mines, tiut he died, and as the 
new government was not friendly to the 
idea. I again failed. At last 1 have suc- 
ceeded in securing the right to work the 
Zeliara mines and have obtained a gi'ant 
of land of about 140 square mile-- from 
Abu Dial) on the ncrth to Hamral Muk- 
l.od ( n the south, with the Red =ea coast 
as an eastern Ixmndary.

ing party by ship to Ras Diurr.i. liut bi- 
itig assured that no landing wouM )»e 
jiossible. I have sent the expedition, con- 
sisting (if a manager, an engineer, a Cor- 
nish ganger, a smith, a carpent.^r and a 
linguist, overland from Edfu, on the 
Nile. From that place to the min<s it \a

and 140 to Sikai't. the other mine which I 
have .i^ecuiT d. 1 may say that th • speci-

to have some for the market later.

A Powerful Pica Made For Internal Revenue 
In Place of the ^Temicious Mockery 

of a Tariff/^ 

Minnesota Senator Voices Objections of an 

Aroused and Indignant Country Against 

the Porto Rican Tariff Bill. 

Washington, March 30. — The speech 
delivered in the senate on Wednesday 
aftern">on by Senator Davis was short 
but masterful. His powerful argument 
Was listened to most attentively by the 
senators. It was fully appreciated that 
Mr. Davis, more than any other man in 
public life, was competent to voice the 
objections of an imlignant country. His 
remarks will b«' the argument against 
which the admlni.«tration senators will 
iwund the r«'niainder of the week, and 
for this rea.son a verbatim report of the 
speech will be of interest, uarticuJar'v 
to the pe )ple of Minnesota. The senator 

Mr. President: 1 am so desirous that 
a vote l>e had upon this bill at thf» 
earliest day possible that 1 have tlumghi 
it betl' r to add.i'ts the sena'.^ this morn- 
ing with much Jess preparation and 
much le.s:s at length tlian I otherwise 
Would have done. This fact will cause 
me to nmit. as I otherwise might have 
done, sime di.scussion of constitutional 
questions involved in this debate and 
many t)ther matters which in my judg- 
ment are auxilia;y and collateral to 
the subject as 1 shall consider it th'.s 

Indeed, so far as I am cvmeerned. I do 
not think, Mr. Prt'sident, that any argu- 
ment on my jiart is necessary on those 
constitutional questi ms. I am content, 
for the present, at i-a-tt. an-l in itiis '.on- 
nection. to rest my views upon the al- 
most judicial deliverances upon that sub- 
ject of the senator fn>m Kentueky (Mr. 
Liindsuy) ami the senator from Ver- 
mont (Mr. Ross). I shall try, Mr: Presi- 
dent, with all temoerateness of expres- 
sion, and Cf-rtaiiily with 
of f.ellng, to submit to the senate my 
views upon this matter as it now 

It is an important question, and. In my 
judgment, it is non-partisan. No re- 
mark I i-iMiU make will have inten- 
tionally the least tinge of partisanshiii. 
All I aim to do is to adjust the most un- 
fortun.ite complicatijn into which this 
measure has fallen. 

Mr. President, i shall speak more par- 
ticularly to what is known as the house 
bill, which is I'mbodied in and has be- 
lonie a part of the bill for the civil gov- 
ernment of Porto Hico now under con- 
sideration. That bill provides that a 
tariff rate of 15 per ct-ntum, as between 
the United States and Porto Flico, both 
ways, of the tariff duties shall be levied. 
It also provides that internal revenue 
taxes shall, ujxtn goods exported from 
Porto Rico •(> th** 'ii!»-d Sanies i. nd 
vice versa, be levied at the port of 


It cannot be denied, Mr. President, 
that from the time this bill was reported 
elsewhere there began a rising tide of 
public opiniiin and dis.sent from the very 
principle unon which it is based. That 
dis.sent began with surprise; is pro- 
gressed to remonstrance, and from there 
it went to indignation. It was not the 
prjtest of members of any party. 


> •••••••••■•A 

Tli«* dissent was not cast at 
all upon i»arty lines. Ft came 
from every walk of life and it 
was communicated through 
every avcnue of thought, and 
it is ba.sed upon this principle: 
That as to Porto Hico t!iere 
should be an unrestrained 
freedom of commercial inter- 

As to Porto Rico, considered 
as Porto Hico. under the par- 
ticular circumstances of the 
<'ase, and what has taken place, 
I repeat that I stand solidly for 
free trade between Porto Hico 
and the ITnlted States. 

Mr. President. up(m that particular 
contf-ntion in this body and elsewhere 
there is an intinite variety of opinion, 
not only as to shades .and collateral, 
controversies that darken the entire 
siilije<t. It has heen asserted and de- 
nied, that we hav«' and that we have 
not. the right to legLslate liy way of im- 
posing tariff duties as iiroj>osed, anil 
all si>rts of questions, all sorts of argu- 
ments, all sorts of objections havi- 
gathered around this controversy and 
obscuretl it with woi-ds. 


Mr. F'resident. I gave notice this 
morning of two amendments which I 
intend to propose to the pending bill in 
regartl to the house measure. I sha". 
only explain one of them at present 
.'ind that amendment is this: 

"The creation of the Porto Hico inter- 
nal revenue district; no stamp tax to 
l)e levied in that district: \r, per centum 
of the internal revenue tax to be lai'' 
in that district, with the exception o! 
rum or distilled spirits and tobacco, an'' 
the manufactures thereof, upon which 
only internal revenue taxes shall b.- 

levied in Porto RicO; that there shall 
be free trade between Porto Rico and 
the United States, and that the proposed 
law shall continue until March 1, lt»03." 

Whatever may be said as to the con- 
tentions upon the other part of the sub- 
ject, whether, considering Porto Rico as 
a dependency or a sa colony, or as a 
part of the United States, we can or 
cannot levy tarllT duties as between 
that island and the United States, there 
can be no doubt whatever upon this 
general principle that, so far as inter- 
nal levenue taxes are concernnd in 
Porto Rico, no such question can arise 
under the distinct and Inherent power 
of this government to levy them. Now. 
Mr. President, why insist, I submit in 
al candor, that a tariff shall be levied 
and nothing else? 

Why, when dealing with the question 
of revenue and taxation, do some of 
our frien<ls here seem to close their 
ey»s to the c<)nsideratit)n that then- 
may be another way of solving this 
ditliculty and raising the revenues 
which will relieve the senate and the 
country entirely from the consider- 
ations which have vexed the minds of 
everybody— a way of doing it undublt- 
ably constitutional in its theory, how- 
ever it may be subject to exception as 
tf» its details. 

Why, Mr. President, Insist upon a 
tariff by a bill which, by its very terms, 
is so temporary and ephemeral In its 
nature as to expire In less than two 
years from date? Why Insist upon the 
perpetration of a measure of this char- 
acter which is agitating public opinion 
and has directed public sentiment, when 
it would be far better to let all things 
alone and allow existing conditions to 
go on? I can see why there can be no 
objection to th*- (ourse proposed by the 
amendment which 1 shall introduce at 
the proper time. 

It certainly would, in my 
opinion, go very far to satisfy 
and appease the storm of pro- 
test which has arisen against 
the pntposed measure, and to 
Porto Rico itself 1 undertake 
to .say that it would l)e ac- 
ceptable, and 1 rely on the 
words of the delegates from 
that Island who were here be- 
fore the senate committee. 

So that. If I interpret the signs of the 
times correctly as to this country, there 
Is the utmost disapproval of this mea- 
sure by a large majority of the ex- 
IK)nents of public .sentiment, to .say the 
least. And as to the stand of Porto 
Rico Itself, its representatives were 
here and their dedaratiim in answer 
to the direct question was that they 
would be content with the internal rev- 
enue system, applying as It does in a 
large part to distilleries, which ar.' al- 
ready there and which were license.l 
undeV the laws of Spain. 


Mr. President. Porto Rico came to this 
country under peculiar circumstances. U 
c< St the United States $:i,OOO,00i) to dis- 
arm the in.'^urgent army in t'tiba and ti> 
buy their guns. It did not cost us a dol- 
lar to disarm any army in Porto Rico, 
lor there was none .if the natives, nor 
were we calh-d upon to pay a dollar for 
uny army whatever. The pe.ipJe of tha'. 
island welcomed the American army, as 
those who went befoie them welcomed 
the Spanish discoverers, with rejolcin.'^ 
and every exp'ctation and hope; and 
from the moment of thi- landing of that 
army, commencing with Oen. Miles' pro- 
clamation, down through all the ortlcial 
ileclarations upon the subject, they hav^ 
been promised the rights and immuni- 
ties of American citizens, and our plain 
dut\ has been declared to he to give 
therii free c«)mmercial intercourse with 
the United States, with no wall of cus- 
toms duties intervening. 

The bill which passed the senate a few 
days ago in respect to the government of 
Hawaii imposed no tariff duties between 
that island, which we erected into a gov- 
ernment, and the United States. It, too, 
is a s.'mi-tropical islaml. U has the 
same range of agricultural productions 
as Porto Rico. 

If there is any reason what- 
ever to impose a tariff upon the 
produi ts of Porto Hico, thi:re 
was the same reason for Im- 
posing a tariff upon the prod- 
ucts of Hawaii. Wherein lies 
the differen<e? Wherein on 
principle — both of them being 
outlying possessions of the 
United States, call them what 
you will— Is the situation as to 
Porto Rico different from that 
of Hawaii? 

Why, Mr. President, this whole project 
and conception of Imposing tariff duties 

upon the dependency of Porto Rico self- 
generates objections wherever It is con- 
sidered, and they also spring from every 
point of contemporary history. I hold 
In my hand the convention entered Into 
between the United States and Qrea^ 
Britain for a reciprocity treaty between 
the West Indies, six In number, 
and the United States, island.s lying in 
the same sea with Porto Rico, raising 
the same products and having In a 
great degree the same character of In-

Mr. (Jallinger— The treaty has not been 

Mr. Davis— My friend, the senator 
from New Hampshire, remarks that the 
treaty has not been ratified. I did not 
say it had been, but I might feel In- 
clined to ask If It Is proposed to reject 
this treaty in order to inflict the Im- 
position of this tax upon Porto Rico? 

It was the view of those Intrusted pri- 
marily with the duty of negotiating 
treaties not long ago that it was fair 
negotiations and enlightened statesman- 
ship to put many articles of produce of 
the British West Indies colonics upon 
the free, list; and in direct and absolute 
contradiction of those views it is the 
view of those who are advocating this 
particular house bill that a course of 
ctmduct as to Porto Hico directly the 
contrary shall be taken. 

Mr. President, there have been all 
.''orts of arguments t » sustain this. At 
first it was charity. That argument has 
been taken-away by the people— that Is. 
since the measure j)as.«ed the hoUi*e ap- 
propriating $2.O».^..00O. the accumulation 
of existing conditions up to Jan. 1, to 
the use and benefit of the island of 
Porto Hico. that being the present .ac- 
cumulation, and of subsequent accumu- 
lations while that law remains m 


It has been said that- this may be a 
preceilent as to the Philippines, and 
that we must inflict Injustice upon the 
inhabitants of Porto Rico for- 
s<^)oth, at some time, perhaps years or 
perhaps shorter, when rel>elllon is 
crushe<l in those Islands and the author- 
ity of the l!nited States Is established, 
there may be some difficult questitins of 
that kind in dealing with the the Philip- 
pines. Mr. President, sufficient unto the 
day not only Is the evil but the good 
thereof. I woubl not wreak or Wt)rk an 
injustice upon Porto Rico by any such 
contingent remainder of apprehension 
as to the Philippines. 

It is .said t-hat American labor and 
American industry need protection by 
this method of legislation as 
Porto Rlc-o. It is too small to consider. 
But, Mr. President, if it is needed, what 
protection to American iab^Jr or Ameri- 
can industry is l.'j per cent of the Ding- 
ley rate upon any theory in which any 
protective tariff was ever framed? When 
the question of the I'hilipplncs comes t 
be considered, I do not care by what 
party In iK»wer, the Interests of Ameri- 
can labor will be protected so far as any can be ascertained from 
ihat source. 

Porto Rico is 70<) miles frtm our coast : 
the Philippines 8000. Porto Rico is an 
actual and geographical dependency of 
the American continent: the Philippines 
belong to Asia. Porto Rico can enter 
our roHticnl 3V«:tem. 

: In the rhilipplnes we have : 

: lalil our hands upon the wealth : 

and commerce of the Orient, 

: and in twenty-five jcars. In : 

my judgment, we will see a : 

: return therefrom upon that : 

great ocean and upon the west- : 

em coast of this continent that : 

will put to confusion and re- : 
: fute every objection that can be 
: made to that acquisition. When 

: that time c imes. and the time : 

: ct)mes to adjust and settle the : 

: relations of this country to the : 

: Philippines, the rights of Amer- : 

: ican labor will be protected by : 
: any party that may be in 

power. : 

Mr. President, how inconsi.stent this 
whole .subject matter seems in detail 
when we consider it. I understand— and 
I think I am reliably Informeil — that the 
provision of the <oaslii'fT laws of the 
United States are extended to Porto 
Rico. S<^ that all commerce between this 
country and that dependency must be 
done in ves.sels enndled and licensed and 
owned in the Unite<l States, while we 
compel produce from here to be carrbd 
there and produce frim there brought 
here to submit to this proposed under- 
tarlff Imposition, and we still retain and 
claim the advantage, and we will nit 
yield It up, that our coast marine shall 
have the exclusive privilege of carrying 
articles from a dependency of this coun- 
try to the states.

It la said that this subject Is not un- 
derstood. Mr. President. It is well 
understood. It Is In vain that any man 
should claim this. He need not lay 
the flattering unction to his soul that 
editors of the great Journals through- 
out the land, in many cities— yes, there 
is not a city which does not pos.sess 
more than one— do not understand the 
suliject Just as well as we. It is futile to 
pretend that the mass of people 
throughout the country do not under- 
stan<l a subject so simple as this. They 
understand perfectly well the difference 
between building up a wall which bars 
commercial intercourse between this 
country and one of its dependencies, 
and a system of taxation such as I shall 
propose which, with no difference ex- 
cept in degree. Imposes on Porto Rieo 
the same system, the same principle, as 
that imposed in the United States. 
Mr. President, in my »)plnion there 
is one thing which has contributed ami 
will contribute more than anything else 
to the strength and earnestness of these 
admonitions that we have been receiv- 
ing from a people who do understand 
this subject and understand it well. 
There are two subjects of scientific ac- 
tion out of which all nations derive the 
most of their revenue today, the United 
States included. Those articles are 
distilled spirits and tobacco. In this 
house bill there is not the imposition of 
a tithe of a mill upon either of those 
articles while they remain in Porto 
Rico. Tobacco and rum, the greatest 
and most fruitful subject of taxation, 
while they remain in Porto Rico, are ab- 
solutely untaxed. The subjects of tax- 
ation which bear the heaviest burdens 
of our United States and the municipal 
governments, these, of all places In this 
broad land, go absolutely scot free of 
any taxation whatever. What Is the 
exchange for It? Fifteen per cent tax- 
ation on everything that goes to 
Porto Rico from the United States or 
comes to the United States from Porto 
Rico. It is so simple and easy to re- 
verse the entire policy and way of doing 
things, and make rum and tobacco in 
Porto Rico bear the weight of taxation, 
as they do here and elsewhere through- 
out the civilized world, and majie com- 
munication between Porto Rico and the 
United States, as to all goods exported 
or imported, free as it is between the 
United States and Alaska. It is sd 
easy to do it, it would relieve the situ- 
ation so much in every way. that I am 
surprised, and shall be surprised, if the 
suggestion does not commend itself to 
the calm and deliberate reflection of 

Mr. President, what will the g<iod 
people of this country say, and what 
are they saying, and what have they a 
right to say, under the bill of the house 
as it is presented in the body of the 
bill for the civil government of Porto 

As to Porto Rico they .say, "Free rum. 
liut tax the fiour out of which is made 
the btea«l that people east." 

They say free rum, but tax their 

They say free rum. but tax their boots 
and shoes. 

They say free rum, but tax the medi- 
cines which minister to the sick. 
When you consider that, drawing the 
contrast between these systems sharp- 
ly as I do: that one Is a system bitterly 
contested in this particular instance, 
and upon ground on which all parties 
profess to have the greatest confidence: 
and the other established upon a prin- 
ciple at least which no one seems in- 
clined to dispute: that one subject is a 
difilcult method of taxation, and one 
the simplest known to all clvilzed fiscal 
processes; that the moral sense of the 
American people will be satisfied by 
placing the traflic on rum upon the 
same ground in Porto Rico as else- 
where in the United States, and that it 
will not be satisfied If it is not done; 
that the yield of revenue from the tax- 
ation of rum alone, upon the rates of 
our internal revenue taxation, that 
island producing 1,500.000 gallons a year, 
would be over $1,500,000 annually, while 
no living man can tell how much or how 
little this tariff imposition will yield: 
when it is a matter of more than doubt 
whether the imposition upon goods go- 
ing from the United States is not an ex- 
port duty, and therefore forbidden by 
the constitution; when, with these con- 
trasts, it would seem perfectly certain 
that the American people would ap- 
prove the internal revenue system in- 
stead of the other. It does seem to 
me, Mr. President, that, as a matter of 
considerate Judgment, they will not 
and that we ought not, to hesitate a 
moment which way to elect. 

Mr. President, I have said about all I 
want to say on this bill. It has been 
imperfectly said, inadequately said, but 
it has been said with the most thor- 
ough and unalterable conviction that 
what I have said is right, absolutely 
right; right, not in a party sense, but 
politically and economically right. In 
my judgment, the only course that can 
be logically or wisely pursued under 
present conditions Is to abandon this 
pernicious mockery of a tariff between 
Porto Rico and the Ignited States and 
return to the path of plain duty and 
pursue it to its logical and beneficial

Nad to Stop a Train to Keep 

From Dying Through 


Minneapolis, March 30.— "If T could meet 
the man who stole my knapsack l:ist week, 
1 would make him a pre.xent of a good 
gold watch. That man saved my life." 

A. N. Anderson, the bicycle dealer, has 
just returned from a two months' trip 
into the woods about Walker, Minn, lie 
makes these trips every winter, and al- 
though he occasionally has experiences 
that are out of the usual, he has particular 
reason to long remember his last trip, says 
the Tribune. 

It came near causing his death, but ac- 
cording to his own statement, because 
someone robbed him he is still a member 
of the wheeling fraternity. 

"I left Nelson & Fry's camp, which is 
about ten miles from Walker, last Satur- 
day morning," said Mr. Anderson yester- 
day. "I had been selling watches among 
the lumbermen, and carried my goods 
around with me In a knapsack. This sack 
had been stolen a few days previous, so 
when I left the Nelson camp 1 had my 
watches tied in ji bundle, which I car- 
ried on my back by means of a strap. I 
left the camp early in the morning, it bLdiig 
my intention to reach a station a few 
mi'les from Walker, and then take the train 
for home. I took a short cut across Kabe- 
kona bay, Leech lake, and had about six 
mi Irs to walk. 

"The cold had affected the ice In a 
peculiar manner. It had frozen so hard 
that 100 yards out from shore it had 
cracked, then been forced up into a ridge 
that at pla< cs was seven feet high. This 
ridge I had to cross, and so 1 chose a 
place where it was about three feet high, 
f got up on the top of the ridge all right, 
but when I started down the other side 
my foot shot from under me, and the 
next moment I was over my head in the 
ice cohl water. 


"I thought then It was the last of me. 
hut I decided to not die without a hard 
fight. I swam for the edge of the ice. but 
it was a long time before I could reach ice 
that was thick enough to hold me. The lee 
kas very thin, and I had to break my way 
through It. all the time, of course, becom- 
ing more and more chilled. I finally, how- 
ever, managed to pull myself out of the 
m.'ss. The first thing I looked for w.a.s my 
cap. and that Wiis floating out in the 
water. After an effort I secured it. 

"Of course, it was an air hole I went 
Into, but the fortunate part of the affair 
was that when I lost my footing, my arms 
new up. and the bundle with the watches 
fell on the other side of the ridge, where I 
found them all safe. Had 1 carried the 
knapsack It would have staid on my back, 
and the weight would have made it ImiJO.s- 
slhle for me to get out of the water. 

"But mv troubles were not over yet. I 
was four miles from nowhere, wet from 
head to foot, and zero weather. 1 ran to 
keep warm, and finally reached the rail- 
road track. When I was about a mile from 
the station I heard the train coming. I now 
p.iw that something heroic would have to 
b>' done, or I would be stranded com- 
pletelv. So I got out in the middle of the 
track" and waived my arms to the engi- 
neer. He, of course, thought that there 
was some accident, and stopped the train. 

"You can bet that conductor was mad 
when he found out that I only wanted to 
KPt on board. But he was a pretty good 
fellow, and I jollied him up a bit, and In- 
fbicpd him to pet me a bottle of whisky. 
That warmed me up a bit, at least so that 
I could stand it until I reached Walker. 
He held the train a few minutes for me 
there so I could purchase a dry suit of 
underwear. Then I 

came on to Mlnne- 

While Mr. Anderson was In the woods 
he says that the only verified case of a 
single wolf attacking a man came to his 
attention. Two men with their teams were 
on their wav to the landing, which was 
four miles from camp. The men were 
walking between the teams, conversing. 
When about half way to the landing the 
man in charge of the rear team heard a 
noise back of him that appeared unusual. 
He started back, and soon the other man 
heard a crv for help. He rushed back, and 


T« Be Added le the laHeul 

GapHal, Mere Room 

Being Needed. 

Washington, March .30. — Ninety-three 

rooms will be added to the aecommoda- 

tions available for house and senate by 

the contemplated additions to the capilol 

at Washington. The plans are all 

drawn, and it only remains for congress 

to authorize the necessary expenditure. 

That an enlargement of the quarters 

provided by the historic edifice is needed 
there can be no doubt, and It is certain 
that the .senate is eager to carry out the 
improvement, members of that body be- 
ing much dissatisfied with the commit- 
tee rooms in the Maltby building, which 
they are compelled to occupy for lack of 
adequate space at home. Lately the 
subject has been seriously discussed in 
the uper house, and the expectation is 
that important alterations in the archi- 
tecture of the building will soon be be- 

The change involved in the plans, how- 
ever, will be in the nature of a comple- 
tion rather than a mere alteration «jf the 
structure as it now stands, inasmuch as 
the capital today, beautiful as it Is, is 
not a finished edifice from an architec- 
tural viewpoint. On the contrary, in a 
technical sense. It lacks symmetry In one 
very Important respect. As everybody 
knows, it does not represent any single 
original plan, but was put together 
piecemeal, first one part being added and 
then another. It is, as a whole, one of 
the most superb buildings in the world, 
but It Is not perfect,- and cne of Us 
faults is that the dome is set over clos.* 
to one edge of it, instead of being 
placed In the middle to give a proper 

It is proposed to do away with this 
lack of symmetry by throwing out a 
great portico, with "aprons" in the 
middle of the east front, to match and 
correspond with the porticos of the two 
great wings. This arrangement, while 
satisfying the artistic requirement, 
would furnish a large amount of addi- 
tional and much-needed space for com- 
mittee rooms and similar purposes. Ac- 
cording to the plans, it alone would pro- 
vide thirty-nine extra rooms. 

The front of this middle portico, as 
well as the "aprons" en either side, will 
be of white marble — quite an addition in 
It.self in point of decorative effect, inas- 
much as the central ortion of the capital 
t('day is merely of sandstone painted 
white. At a casual glance one might 
suppose that the entire building was of 
marble, but, as a matter of fact, only 
the wings and the massive terrace on 
the west front are of that material. Of 
course the portico will have a magnifi- 
cent flight of steps, having ascended 
which the visitor will pass through a 
pillared pylon into a great marble vesti- 
bule, vying in beauty with the famous 
marble room of the senate. 

But this is not all by any means. In 
the middle of the west front, also, a new 
portico of marble is to l>e added, and two 
extensions of "aprons" will be construct- 
ed on that side between the old or cen- 
tral portion of the building and the 
wings. These "aprons" will furnish 
twenty-four additional rooms, and, like in the extensions on the east front, 
they will open into a long corridor or 
Ijassageway running north and south 
and lighted from interior courts, the 
latter being left as open spaces in mak- 
ing the alterations. 

These corridors, running lengthwise of 
the building on both of its flanks, will 
add greatly to the convenience of get- 
ting about in the capitol, where now 
there is practically only one passageway 
through which to go to any place. The 
corridor on the east side will open at its 
south end into the corridor of the su- 
preme court. This applies, however, only 
to the main floor. On the same floor the 
west side corridor will open at its south 
end into statuary hall, and at its north 
end into the conference room of the 
supreme court. Arrangements on the 
ground floor correspond.

While he belonged to the ela.Ha of men 
who give large c/jecks t.t pay c:i:npaign 
expense!*, hi.< popularity and his repeated 
e!ection« to congre.s.M were due almost 

< nlirely to tlie fact that he was a very 
HUt-^e.'-Hful Iju.'-^iiK'SH man, to sa- 
gacity and hard labor in pioneer time.-?, 
th" remarkable development of North- 

< in Wisconsin is very largely du'.-. It i.- 
leasonable to suppose that he would 
have been elected to congress quite as 
1 ften had h<; not been a ri h man. 

Mr. Sawyer was a native of Vermont, 
and h.- live.l to a gre.-n ol<l age, being 
nearly M jeurs old. He wa.s not born 
great or wealthy, and his early life was 
on.' of inanujil la)>or, with but few op- 
p'lrtubitles for education. In 1H17, at tli • 
age of 31, hr: oaine to Wisconsin with a 
capital of alKiuf Ji'KM), ami after two h* a- 
.M'n.s of not v«-iy successful farming l.'i 
his new home, turned his attention tj 
logging and lumbering. He wa.H suc- 
. .-.'^.sfijl fr.jrn iJie start, and th"f-aftf-r h*; 
had a prosperous career as a busin'.-s.-^ 
man. He look an a';tiv«r interest In pub- 
lic aflairs, serving a.s alderman and sub- 
:-;equently as mayor of r>shkosh, later 
g.jing to the state legislature and then 
ti> congress. He served ten years In the 
housn of representatives, and then re- 
fused to iw a landidate for re-electbrn. 
Mis r.'.ord us a miinber of congress is 
part of the history i,t that time. He was 
one term chairman of the eommitl«-'e on 
government expenditures. In the Forty- 
ilinl rongre.'^.s he was chairmin of th-.: 
Pacific railroad committee. Eight years 
h" was on the ci«nmitie«.* of commerce. 
.Six year^' h<- was th.- .•-•econd m'inl»er oji 
that committee, <md during a large i»or- 
lion of the time the acting chairman. 
Tiierefore, it beeMinc liis duty s<; 
tiiiies, to r.|»ort and take charge of th'- 
iiills making appropriations for rivers

und.-r su.'-periMi.jn <>{ th.; rules, wh.-n i*-- 
I I rte.l and vouched for by him. 

•Mr. Sawy.-r was not fitted by natur", 
ttalnlng or inclination for Hpee(!li-m«k- 
ing in congress. Hut his acknowledged 
influ.-nc.- am] sifUixl ju.lginent on mal- 
l.-iH <»f prailj.-al l.-gislali.>n were of mot'.- 
influence in obtaining and retaining the 
e.infidence of the rieople of Wisconsin 
tii.m woubl any number of speeches re- 
I orled In the (Nmgressional Hecord. In 
\vy\ he was electeil to the .senate to SU - 
<•• .-d Angus Cameron. 

.Mr. ,Sawyer's business connections 
w.-re ext.-nsiv- ami large. He w.'is worth 
several million .lollars. Several years 
.ago some one asked him what his Iji- 

< <une was. "Well, 1 don't know Just 
' xactly," he said In reply. "1 never .lid 
knov.' Just what my income was, and I 
hav«! got bookk.-t-per.s enough, to*. 1 
only know that I don't get hard up very 
often and I hav.- to give away a good 
.li-al of money. 1 usually figure how 
much I give away and I keep some tr.t.k 
of what I .spend for myself atid in lb" 
family and what g<HS baik into diff.-r-

body ever got of Mr. Kawyer's incinne. 

Mr. Sawyer lived In the simplest man- 
n. r imaginable. His ro.ini in the larye 
inaiihi'.n which h.- built in 
for his daughter, Mrs. Howard Whit", 
was pio|»iibly tin- .^-.mall'st in the hou:-e. 
He was p.'i f.'.'tlv willing olh. r p.ople

an.i frugality. He waik.'d much while in 
Wa.-^hinglon to keep down hi.-: w.-ight. 
liis inclinatl.>n to increase Ibsli began 
wh.-n thirty years ago he gradually 
cea.sed to do hard work in the mills and 
logging <anips. "Th.-re w.-re several 
.viars," said Mr. Sawyer, when he wa."? 
talking about his physique, "when I 
could not see my shixs unless 1 twisted

20,000 birds for Easter bonnets. No birds 
are wanted for Easter millinery trim- 
ming. There is no demand for birds; 
they are unsalable and. consequently of 
no value to the trade. The dispatch Is 
a canard of the worst type. The name 
of the party given as having made the 
contract Is unlinown in the trade." It is 
pleasing to learn that there is no truth 
In the story. 

Cbicagu papers are poking fun at Kan- 
sas City, not unmixed with envy, and 
declare that iiutel accommodations are 
fxior and many visitors will b« compelled 
to walk the str»tts at night. Hut as a 
matter of fact Kansas <'ity is splendidly 
e<pilpiK'd to entertain a great gathering 
an. I has an iiudltorium second to none in 
«'hicago. Every one who goes to the 
K.-msas City conv^ition will Im; well tak'-n

Tfie Top.-ka State Journal is another 
iH-wspaper that wants .1 little informa- 
tbiii. it says: "Since Senator Hanna 
denies the Washington f^tar's story about 
the influences behind the Porto Rlcan 
tariff bill, perhaps be wiil not mind tell- 
ing an interested public just what is re- 
spon.vibl"' for the opposition to ihf course 
recommended by the president." 

The Porto Rlcan tarlflT bill is b.-ing 
amended by Foraker. but the changes do 
not alter the vicious feature of the mi.-as- 
ur»'. amended bill that they are try- 
ing to put tlirough the senate now is 
no b< tt.-r than the original measure. It 
commits th<: government to a distinctive 
colonial pijilcy. 

The Minneapolis Tribune declares that 
the Repubiiciin p;irty must stand by pro- 
tection. Hut the Ri;publicaii party has 
Kaln<d its reputation and a large meas-

tilings after it was no longer desirable 10 
stand by them, from the standpoint of 
the best intere.-;ts at th.; countrv.

President Hadley. of Yale, has m.ade a 
Stat. ni. lit of the ailvaniag.-s of priva:e 
eiit.-rprise us opposed to public owr.i r- 
shlp of in.lustrt.'il forces, which applies 
with singular fitness to the advantag;s 
of self-HOVerimi.nt as opposed to .lespot- 
ism or b.-nevol«ni imperialism. "Wlnre 
th.» arguments appear to be evenly bal- 
• nce'l," he says. "tb«'re is one point wl.ich 
will genernlly turn the scale In favor of 
private enterpris.-; and that is, the hlgl.- 
.-r educational cbara.-ter of a system 
which b-avts people free to make their 
own mistakes an.i find their own c.»rrec- 
tlves. as against a system which produc- 
ing a more widespread conformity from 
th.; beginning, may av.d.l abus.-s at tirst, 
but bln.ler progress In the long run." 
The argum.-nt of s.-If-rub', even In the 
case of so-caib-d liackward peoples, could 
not be expressed more forcibly and clear- 

fjen. Lew Wallace's anfl-unperlalism 
was late In coming, but now that it has 
.arrived. It appears t.i be n- sev<-re case. 
He sees In Pr.-sldent McKlnl.y a deslgn- 
Injf imp.-rator. who is b.iit on 
ing a <:oiunial empire, with hlm.self as 
p.rsonal ruler. As for tho Republican 
s.-nators. Oen. Wallace confesses his in- 
ability to decide whether their "obse- 
•pilousness" to the president "is due to 
the patronage which the president always 
skillfully ke.-ps In sight and smell of con- visitors, or to the Caesarian 
meat they are In the habit of eating at 
th.-lr 5 o'clock dinners." Such language 
makes one gf-sp, in view of the fact I hat 
Oen. Wallace wa.s one of the original Mc- 
Kinley men of Indiana. The Porto Rican 
outrage opened his eyes.

Rrainerd Arena: Congressman Morris 
called on McKlnley last Thursday and a.-;-

volved in the Porto Rico tariff bill. Only 
a fool or a knave would make such a 
statement aa that 


Minneapolis Times: Well might Senator 
C. K. Davis, in telling his colleagues tliat 
the people "understand" to the full, the 
Poito Rlcan question, have added: "It is 
you who do not, or rather will not 'un- 
derstand' what the country thinks of your 
determination to enforce a tarift on the 
afflicted island." There will come a ruoe 
awakening to the protection-blinded par- 
tLsans who insist "Wisdom flows from u.; 
alone." How can men l>e honest when 
they oppose an internal revenue for Porto 
Rico, as proposed in Senator Davis' bill.' 
on tlie ground that. If passed, hordes of 
tobacco manufacturers and distillers from 
the I'nited States will migrate to t.'i.- 
Island and. by manufacturing their wares 
lli.-re, mulct our government in iinipense 
sum^? When, as plainly expressed, th.- 
bflls life ends in V*3'Z. how could this va.s; 
migr.-ition b*- <-onsummated? This excu.s.- 
is of a piece with the protection liowl 
anent P.irto RP-an .-offee. statistics show- 
iUK that the total exports of tlie berry, tiie belaud, in the year preceding the 
Hispano-Ameritan war. were valued at 
less than <2<)U. 

We slncer.-lv hop.* that the* will 
ani'-n.l the ho'us.- bill if even in the sliglit- 
est m'-asuie. Th.' 'i'lnies is an independent 
paper and woubl pr.'fer justice ii^^'orto 
Rico to th.- making of capital for or 
against any political party. We believe 
that if the' house ev.-r gets a chance to 
re-vole on the ways and means c.trnmii- 
teo s measure, the l>allot will tell anoth.r 
story from the one the public has brandeii 
"infamous." Representatives have at lasi 
"understood" that the "understanding' of 
the people is clear, absolute, unchange- 
able, and would be glad to show thai ih.y 
are converted to a belief in representation 
of public sentiment. Members of the low* r 
house have always been in closer touch 
with their constituents than have the sen- 
ators, an.i more is to be hoped from the 
former than from the 8elf-<jpinionat.:d 
seipm-urs. It may w<;Il be that when the 
Phllad. ij^bia convention comes to the mak- 
ing of a platform. Republican senators and 
representatives, wh.> turn deaf .ais to ur- 
g.-ni app.-als from a compelling maijirlty 
of the voters will learn .s.amething to Iheir 
disadvartage. W<- are well assured tliat 
there will \t" one i)lank in the Kansas City 
platform that will be received with ac- 
fbiim by voters Benf-rally. for ther<- Is no 
dubiety as to the D.mocratlc declaration 
anent "the porto Rban tariff.

Is a Rtmarkablo Woman With a Dis- 
tinguished Ancestry. 

It is during the Jameson raid. The 
first lady of the land is knitting stock- 
ings for her grandchildren. She is sit- 
ting on the porch of the simple cottage 
which constitutes the executive mansion 
of the South African republic. In the 
"zykainer" (parlor) the president con- 
fers with his cabinet. "Tonte" (aunt) 
Kruger's attention seems to be entirely 
taken up by her woik. She is counting 
the stitches. Suddenly she raises her 
head and listens. SomelXKly is talking 

It is one of the guards wiiich have 
been placed around the cottage in order 
to protect Com Paul from any treacher- 
ous design on the part of the "Uitland- 
ers." Mrs. Kruger has an Invincibb; 
aversion to the tongue of the P>ritish, al- 
though she speaks it fairly well. She 
Immediately puts her knitting down and 
t-nters the room where the cabinet is in 
.session. She unceremoniously interrupts 
the proc-eedlngs and informs "Neef" 
(cousin) Joubert that one of the guards 
was an "Engelsman" (Englishman). 
Through the windov,- she points out the 
man in question. Piet Joubert laughs 
and assures her that the guard Is a 
loyal "Afrikander." Her husband sup- 
ports him, but his good wife is not sat- 
isfied. She quotes the old Dutch prov- 
erb that "caution is the mother of the 
china closet," and insists that the guard 
be replaced by a man who will speak 
' de taal" (the language) when on duty. 
The members of the cabinet know from 
experience that there is no salnsaying

tain to hor hu.shand's safety, and under 
snme pretext or other (»en. Joubert sends 
the offending guard home. "The first

and quietly resumes her knitting.

Kindhearted a."^ she Is, there Ls a rt- 
culiar gleam in her e.ves whenever thi

distrust of all that is British is so deep 
that to the casual visiloi- it may seem 
unjust. J;ut when she begins to tell of 
the dangers and th*' mlsei> of the long 
"treks" to \vhi< h her family lias been 
forced by Hrilish sodiers. it is ea.«iiy un- 
.lerslood how deeply this aversion is 
luijted in her heart an well as in th- 
breasts of all "Afrikanders." (It may

which all Hoers invarial'ly give to them-

It is a common thing iii the Transvaal 
to hear mothers bring in their children t'^' 
oli.-dienee by telling them that the 
"Engelsman" will fetch them unless 
they mind their parents. 

When we take this hatred of their 
enemies into '■on.>=ideration, the kindness 
and humanity with which th» Poers-- 
evcn act ording to EnRlish testimony — 
t!fat the British wounded and j-risoners 
in the pre.sent war beromes .1 strong 
proof <jf the true Christian sr'irit among 
the people of the Boer republics. 

A very pretty example of this is fur- 
nished when Mrs. KruRcr and h.r hus- 
band f v.'ry murning gather the wholi' 
household in the parlor and a eJiapter 
from ih<' Hcriptures is read by either the 
fiKsiiient himself or his wife. 

The first lines of Mrs. Krutr.-r's fav.i- 
rito hymn, translated from the Dutch, 
read as follows: 

"Where Love doth dwell there the Lord's 

blessing rain.-th. 
There dwells the Lord, there man Hi.^ 

bliss obtaineth 

In life and eternity." 

Thoush always afraid of puldicity, 
Mrs. Krug.-r. in conjunction with her 
most intimate friend, the wife of Oen. 
Piet .]. ul.f.rt. put herself at th.' head "f 
the temperance m'^ivement which was 
inaugurated in the Transvaal only a few 
years ngo. Before that time there had 
l>een littie necessity for temperance work

influx of foreign adventurer.^ and 
miners, especialy at Johannesburg, 
changed the situation, and there was 
serir)us d.'ing< r for the youn.£;er genera- 
tion of Boers at least. Mrs. Kruger and 
Mrs. Joubert have from the he;.;inning 
worked earnestly for the good cause and 
have succeeded in minimizing the dan- 
ger which threatened their people. 

And novV, while the cruel \v.qr is going 
on, who is there more deserving f»f th.; 
sympathy of t\\c Christian world than

Makes Fun of tha Amorloan '*Ralny- 
Day" Skirt. 

ThP most independent creature in 
Cuba is the American woman tourist. 
Those of tlio fair pcx who havo tnro\v:i 
their lot with the Havanese for any 
great length of time have found it 
necessary to observe somewhat the cus- 
toms of the country, but not so the 
twurist w ho blows in here for a few davs 
jui<t t > see the sights. Xi> sooner di>es 
she get ashore and into her trunks than 
she drags out her rainy day skirt ami 
ht^r camera and sets forth seeking whom 
she may devour, accompanied or tin\'- 
tompanied by man, as the situation fioni 
her own untrammeled American point of 
view demand.s. T''p and down the .mrei^t.-? 
afoot and en c )chi', in the i)arks, out t.i 
the cemetery, across tht- harbor to grim 
old Cabanas and romantic Morro she 
goes with utter unconcern. snap-sho<itin;.: 
everything that strikes her vivid fancy 
as of interest. The Cabanas, accustomed 
perforce to strange deeds on the part of 
the Americans, male and female, look m 
in mild-eyed wonder but without a word 
of protest— strangely enough, too, fur 
they rarely miss a chance to protest in 
the most formal and high-flown manner, 
says a Havana correspondent of t'le 
New York Sun. The first and only ho.\ I

which ocularly was the most radical .if

the ex-revivalist to.ik up his pen and 
fTr several months he cut a pretty 
■wide swathe in the journalistic* Hcki. 
Th" Journal had no cabe .^i-rvice and 
only one reporter, but everybody read 
it to see what Sam Small had to sav. 
He wrote with a r >ugh and ready wit 
more or less as .he u.«ed to talk when lie 
was saving souls at crowded camii 
me<-tings, and when he got after anybody 
f>r anything, the fur tlew. He played tat; 
with government policies and individual 
idiosyncrasies with such freedom and 
lluency that his editorial page became 
a treat to all those to wh^m it had no 

(Jne fine morning Sam lit on the rainy 
day skirt cjuestion, and for several day? 
there was a marked paucity on the 
streets of these modern and most con- 
venient garments. The tourists wiin 
had just come to town put them away 
and donned regulation petticoats, for 
^vhat he had to say on the subject 
eclipsed probably the opinions of the 
straightest-laced old Cuban beldam;- 
who even looked with horror upon the 
freedom indulged in by American 
women. His old-fashioned Georgian 
soul rose up in indignant revolt against 
this newfangled practice and he burst 
into this outraged editorial expression: 

■'The American woman who comes to 
Havana, even as a casual tourist, owes 
something ti her own reputation and 

that of her countrywomen. Tlie very 
besc way in which she can exhibit this 
respect is not to go gallivanting around 
the streets of this city in an Alpine hat. 
a tight-fitting jacket, a bicycle skirt 
and walken-fast shoes that would better 
suit a hod-carrier. Especially gllould 
the short, heavy cycle skirt be left ufi'. 
Th'- Cuban gentleman Is not used to see 
ladies of the better class diked out in 
such tough toggery, and the Cuba.-i 
lady of high degree regards it as a con- 
cession to the Ideas of the washerwoman 
and the audacity of the street-walker. 

"The spectacle of an American la ly 
walking down Obispo sti-eet in that rig is 
equivalent to seeing a circus supe in a 
sixteenth century coat of mall parading 
Pennsylvania avenue in Washington 
when there is m circus In town. 

"If the Ami'riian woman desires to 
save herself from ridicule, possibly from 
open insult, and especially the fame of 
her sisterhood as that of a m>dest. welU 
composed and elegant contingent of a 
great nation, she will conform more to 
the customs of Cuba In dress and de- 
portment, and not try to repeat here the 
license of the Central Park bicycle path 
and Coney Island beach of the United 

While this editorial article had its 
temporary effect, it could not last, th^* 
offenders against the ex-revivallsfs 
sense of pn)priety being mostly tourists 
who come and go. In a few days there 
were in evidence on the streets the same 
number of abbreviated skirts. The Cu- 
bans said not a word, but they took it 
all in. and when carnival time came they 
had their opportunity to express b\- 
satire their views on the subject. » >n 
last Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, tiie 
ojiening days of the carnival, there was 
a piMcession each afternoon around the 
Prado. Thousands of peoi)le were )ui 
on foot or horseback and in carriages oi" 
all kinds. Some were masked and in 
costume and some were not. and among 
the former no c>ne was more? conspicuous 
<ir more applauded than a crowd of 
young nun dressed as American toui- 
ists. The rainy-day skirt was gloriously 
there, cut off at the knees, and so «as 
the camera in the shape of cigar boxes. 
Kvery one in the party had a cigar box 
in each hand, and with joyful Impudence 
they held uji the procession to take snan 
shots. phitographlng everything in 
sight, sticks, stones, policemen, houses 
and what not. It was a clever burlesque, 
gorxl-natured withal, and tlie only ones 
who did not enjoy It were the American 
women who happened to be In the crowd 
with short skirts and cameras. 

Notwithstanding the fervor of Sam 
Somali and the natural prejudice of the 
Cubans to the innovation, Havana al)ove 
all cities would seem to be the !)lace for 
the rainy-day skirt, and If the American 
tourist can popularize them here .-lie 
will have accomplished a real reform. 
Despite everything that the Americans 
have been able to do, Havana's street;* 
are dirty. Mui h of the city Is unpaved 
either with granite blocks or asnhalt. 
so that when it rains they are dread- 
fully muddy and foul smelling. The 
germs of all sorts of loathsome dis- 
eases are lurking In this mud and filth. 
A woman with trailing skirts cannot 
but pick up a lot of the dirt, no matter 
how careful she may try to be. This 
she carries to her home, and when her 
clothes are brushed the germs fly in 
dust all about the rooms. In the ooiniin 
of the physicians, several of the women 
who have had yellow fever are more 
than likely to have swept It up in the 
streets with their skirts; at least thev 

have not been able to trace its origin 
to any other source, as they have so 
generally when men have been afflicted 
with the disease. Rainy-day skins, 
aside from being more comfortable and 
cleanly. If worn generally here by w > 
men. would certainly lessen the chances 
of spreading ctmtagious diseases.

Impartant Functians. 

To the girls wlio are learning the prac- 
tical lessons of every day domestic lif » 
present conditions come as a matter of 
Cuurse, while to the older women they 
are a revelation. You do not realize how 

it is all made so much easier to you 
than it was to your mothers, and how 
infinitely easier it is than your grand- 
mothers ever dreamed It could be. 
Science has revolutionized domestic 
matters, and you are Just In time to re- 
alize the greatest benefits from her dis- 
coveries. Knowing this, have you not a 
new respect for the everyday things 
which you have been accustomed to 
treat with Indifference? Are you so 
much greater and wiser than the scholar 
and scientist that you can scorn and be- 
little that to which he considers It worth 
while to bring training and education 
and years of thought and study to im- 
prove, says the Boston Herald. 

In your hands Is to lie in a great mea- 
sure the unraveling of the domesltc 
problem, which for so hmg a time has 
been vexing the home. For some Inex- 
l)licable rea.«on the duties which go to 
making a happy and a comfortalUe 
household have fallen into disrepute: 
the homely tasks which lie close at 
hand are looked upon with a disfavor, 
and in same cases, a contempt whii h 
they do not deserve. It has been the 
fashion to speak of the routine of house- 
hold matters as "monotonous," and 
young women have openly scorned tlie 
assumption of them as lieneath the edu- 
t ated. cultivated woman. There has 
l)cen a drifting away from the home and 
its influences, and the girls have been 
Impatient to get out int(j the world and 
to strike out for themselves in some 
new, untried way. 

In a measure this Is right enough. The 
eagerness to do something worth while, 
to become a part of the working force of 
the world, is a natural and a nobel am- 
bition for any girl. One would not give 
a tig for the girl who did not want to 
make a place for herself, where she 
might be recognized: who did not want 
her influence to be fell for the betterinqr 
of the world. Only the question comes, 
what is her better way. the wide road of 
the outside world, or the sheltered patii 
al)out the home field. 

This question every girl must answer 
for herself, as the best promptings of 
her Inner nature suggests. 

Hut there is one word of caution and 
suggestion to speak just here. When 
this question comes to be a personal one, 
be sure that you argue fairly with your- 
selves. Do not let desire stifle duty. It 
l3 so easy to make oneself believe that 
the thing which one wants to do is the 
right thing to be done. Eyes and ears 
are shut to the other side, and because 
one won't hear and see, she remains 
blind and deaf. Then, with only one 
.^Ide presented, says she has "argued the 
whole thing out." 

The only «ay this can be done Is for 
every girl whohas the question to settle 
to be honest with herself, true to her 
own heart, to respect and honor the 
home side of life In Its simplest relation, 
and to remember that the homeliest and 
humblest tasks and duties become glori- 
fied and uplifted If done in the true 
spirit of service. 

Of late years It has been considered 
"broadening" to look outside of the 
home for employment and interest, and 
there has been, in consequence, a belit- 
tling of home duties and avocations. The 
real Importance of the domestic care- 
taker has been overlooked and underval- 
ued. Other things have assumed such 
unfair proportions that there has come 
to he a false standard of measurement. 
It is going to be the work of the women 
of the near future, those who are girls 
now, to begin the correction of this 
standard, and to help put the science of 
domestiv.^ manipement upon the high 
plane where it l>elongs. Surely there can 
be nothing better and nobler than to pro. 
vide the resting jilace for the world's 
workers to make the h»nne where the 
children shall be taught the nobler side 
of life, and where they shall be protect- 
ed and made happy until the time comes 
for them to prepare either to become 
workers themselves, or to In turn make 
the home for the worker. 

And there is one more thing to remem- 
ber, and that is that the woman or girl 
who disdains hou.sehold duties, and af- 
fects to have no knowledge of them, 
writes herself down as a vulgarian of 
the most hopeless stamp, who knows 
ni'ihing of the trend of events, and fails 
most signally to read the signs of the 

This i.* the sermon the woman might 
have preached from the text, which was 
of her own giving. And Pvery word is 
gospel truth.

G. H. Le Sage, dairy and food Inspec- 
tor, has completed his inspection of the 
barn.<> of the dairymen in the city and 
he finds them In fine condition. In all 
he Inspected 83 dairies and 1023 cows. 
The inspection of dairies has resulted in 
much good, for there has been a de- 
cided improvement in the condition of 
the cows and the barns since the system 
of inspection was inaugurated. 

The inspection of barns is only a part 
of the work of keeping track of the 
dairies. The Inspector is constantly get- 
ting samples of the milk furnished by 
dairymen and testing them, and If the 
milk does not come up to the standard 
set by the department, the dealer is noti- 
fied that he must feed his animals so 
that the milk will show the required 
strength. The dairymen generally have 
grown so that they take as much in- 
terest in keeping up the required qual- 
ity as does the department. They fre- 
quently come in of their own accord with 
samples of milk to see how they test, and 
if they are too weak make a change in 

At the present time the department 
does not maintain an office in this city. 
This is regarded as a misfortune, for 
now the dairymen and others who wish 
to consult the inspector cannot alwajs 
find him and may have to delay for some 
time. The dairy and food commission 
has been getting a nice lot of fines oui 
of the city of Duluth. very much more 
than the rent of an office would cost.

LOOATWH—The mines of this com- 
pany are located In Elmore county. Idaho, 
about 80 miles in an easterly direction from 
Boise City, on the Middle Boise river. 

PItOPEKTUEM —This company owns and 
controls properties as follows: The "Mon- 
arch" or "Atlanta" mine, the "Pettit, No. 
1," the "Pettit, No. 2." the "Buffalo." the 
"Last Chance." the "Pomeroy." the "Sil- 
ver Tide. ' together with ten additional 
claims and locations, aggregating about 5^) 
acres with perfect titles. 


ture of this district Is the Atlanta 


which traverses Atlanta Hill for two 
miles. This wonderful ore body Is a true 
fis.sure vein from 40 to 60 feet wide and 
carries extraordinary values. The proper- 
ties of this company are on and adjacent 
to this great vein. 


facts of record seem proper right here. 
Idaho has a mint record of $250,000,000 gold 
production. In 1899 the state's mineral pro- 
duction was approximately Jl5,OOu.OOO. This 
year, 1900. will probably see a heavy in- 
crease over last year. 

The record of the Wells-Fargo Express 
company shows gold shipments from this 
district of over S^S.000,000. Since 1868. all 
records give the "Monarch." now "Atlan- 
ta" mine, credit for over $5,000,000 worth of 
gold produced- Twelve hundred thousand 
tlollars was taken frob a block of ground 
20O feet high and 300 feet long. A single 
.shipment of ten tons from the "Atlanta"' 
nette<l JSO.OiA', or $8000 a ton. 

Fivt huntfrMl (600) font tf ert frtn Hit 
"ASIaiita'' natttd the twntrt avtr $400,000. 

—These 500 tons were carricnl 40 miles on 
mule back. 215 miles by wagon, and then 
taken by rail to the smelter at Omaha. 
Aside from transportation charges, the 
smelter charges alone were $:W a ton. Thl.9 
probably was the shipment of its 
size of gold ore that ever was made. 


—These several properties have over FIVE 
MILES (close to 30.000 feet) in tunnels, 
shafts, drifts, winzes, up-raises. etc. The 
improvements include a l.=i-stamp mill, 
chlorlnation works, shaft house.s, assay of- 
fices, ore houses, hoisting machinery, re- 
pair shops, water power. Targe quantity of 
supplie.s and raw material, etc. 

nVf ATLAHTA DUMP -One of the 

wonders of this great district is the "J^t- 
lanta" diimi). It contains 250,000 tons of 
ore. of which at least 150,000 tons will AV- 
ERAGE $10 a ton. Ore a-t^aaylng as high as 
$700 a ton has been found on this dump. In 
the old days. It was impossible to ship ore 
at a profit that ran under $40 a ton, and 
that shipped ran nearer $100 a ton. That 
explains how this large and rich dump 
came to exist. 

from 40 to GO per cent free milling. It Is 
an ideal concentrating ore and also well 
adapted to the cyanide process. The con- 
centrates can either be shipped to a smel- 
ter or a cyanide plant be installed. It is 
impossible here to go into details as to 
the values of the ores on the diiferent 
properties. That is all explained in a pros- 
pect u.s, supplied by the company upon ap- 
plication. As stated, the "Atlanta" has 
produced over $5,000,000. The "Buffalo," 
from a comparatively small block of 
ground, produced over $600,000. The gen- 
eral averages of the "Last Chance" lode is 
$125 in gold and is free milling. The vein 
averages .? feet in width and a portion of it 
carries values in excess of $SO,000 a ton. 

ORE IR MtOHT— Space will not permit 
an enumeration of the number of tons ac- 
tually in sight in each mine of each grade 
of ore. That is given in detail In the pros- 
pectus. The value in dollars, however, Is 
concisely shown in the following recapit- 



—The company 
proposes to run a tunnel 7000 feet, which 
will tap the "Atlanta" vein at a depth of 
1000 feet below present workings. This will 
insure perfect drainage, cheapen transpor- 
tation of ore from the mine to the mUl, and 
which are now producing mines. It Is es- 
timated that this tunnel, after 1500 feet. 
will pay all expenses of further construe 
tlon. The big water power will be utU- 
ized in all this work, solving the fuel and 
power problem In the operation of the 

TME OOMT—To enlarge and remodel the 

mill and instal the power plant to drive 

the tunnel, will cost approximately $100,000. 

and $50,000 more for supplies, outfit and 

preliminary work necessarj- to place the 

properties on a producing basis. When 

this is done, the proposition will not only 

pay all expenses, but heavy dividends as

The above figures take no account of 
large quantities of ore running from $3 to 
$8 a ton. Much of the ore, also is extreme- 
ly rich In silver. 

I— The management of this com- 
pany, on most conservative estimates, 
place monthly profits from 40 stamps at 
$26,200. With the tunnel completed and the 
addition of the 130 stamp mill, a total net 
profit per month of $15I,2riO is considered 
a certainty. This will permit monthly div- 
idends of 2 per cent on the entire capitaliz-

stock is on the market. All the stock is 
non-assessable and fully paid up. 


The consolidation of properties and 
Interests has been effected In the Interests 
of economy and convenience in operating 
them. Five stamps will be added to the 15- 
stamp mill at once, and work resumed on 
the properties. As soon as possible, the 
number will be Increased to 40 stamps. 
Active development work also will be pros- 
ecuted and eventually, plans carried out 
for an 129-stamp mill, with a capacity of 
500 tons a day.

powder Winchester has been discarded 
and nothing but the best goes. Most of 
the new guns were bought during the 
Spanish war. when we would experiment 
all day with tree trunks and rougl. 
trenches, learning the art of war at home. 
We found that a bullet from one of the 
new Winchesters, driven by smokeless 
powder, was pood for four foot and more 
of pine timber and for more than an inch 
of iron. 

"I thought the boys had done about 
everything in the shooting line that could 
be done long ago, but I was mistaken. I 
sent them up a wagon. In hauling down 
firewood they broke the bolsters all to 
flinders. The bolsters hold up the wagon 
bed, you know. Well, the boys figured 
out all right the rebuilding of the wood 
parts, but came near being stumped on the 
iron fixings. They got some old iron wagon 
tires and cut them in proper lengths, but 
hadn't a way that they could see to punch 
the necessary bolt holes. Finally the ques- 
tion was solved. One of the boys carefully 
marked the places for the bolts, stood the 
piece of tire against a tree and put a 
bullet, 30-calibre. through the tire at each 
place marked. It was a novel sort of 
blacksmithing, but it worked."

The aothler. 


Thomas Whalen shaves four millionaires 
a day. He makes the round of their resi- 
dences every morning and uses his own 
fast pacer to save time. They all pay 
him a liberal salary and in three hours 
each morning he earns more than the 
average barber does in four days, 'says 
the Chicago Inter Ocean. 

Mr. Whalen's clients are P. D. Armour, 
S. W. Allerton. Marshall Field and N. K. 
Fairbanks. They employ him by the year, 
and his salary continues whether they aie 
in Europe, New York. California or Chi- 
cago. His contract calls for a dally shave 
in Chicago, and if the millionaires' chins 
are not to be found, Whalen is not the 
sufferer. His "pull" is said to be the gen- 
tlest, but his fellow barbers declare It is 
very strong, and besides the salary he gets 
there is always a liberal Christmas pres- 

The .scale of salaries paid is as follows: 
Mr. Armour. $75 per month; Mr. Field, m 
per month; Mr. Allerton. 1.50. and Mr. p'air- 
bank, $35. All of these gentlemen have 
their nrivate barber shops, and Mr. 
Whalen has the running of them. He 
keeps each supplied with the finest razors, 
shears, strops, soaps, mugs and other 
re'iuisites of a flrst-class tonsorial parlor. 
He knows the turn of every whisker of his 
patrons, and there is never any kick about 
razors with a "pull." 

His labors begin early. Mr. Armour's 
home is his first stepping place, though re- 
cently, during that gentleman's residence 
in California, he has not been getting up 
so early. Mr. Armour has always shaved 
by 6 o'clock and earlier. From there it is 
only a block to Mr. Field's I*rairie avenue 
mansion, and just across the street, a 
little to the south, he finds Mr. Allerton 
ready for his daily scrape. But to reach 
Mr. Falrbank he must make a big jump 
to the North Side, and his fast pacer 
comes in good use. Cars are too uncertain, 
and Mr. Falrbank cannot be kept waiting 
or disappointed, and before 9 o'clock 
Whalen is at the Lake Shore drive resi- 
dence, ready for Mr. Falrbank to come 
to the private barber shop. 

"Tom" Whalen is one of the best-known 
barbers in Chicago. He has made a com- 
petency out of his work, and his income 
now is by no means beggarly, averaging 
close to $3000 for the year. His last 8hOi» 
was in the Methodist Church block. This 
he sold several years ago. He now devotes 
hie attention to the four millionaire, cus- 
tomers and several fine horses.

Superior Street Business Men 

Notified to Remove All 

Sidewaiic Obstructions. 


Second Rand Deaiers Take 

the Order With Rather 

Bad Grace, 


All sidewalk obstructions must S'^ 
That was the substance uf an ord.r 
issued by Mayor Hugo yesterday, anil 
the police department promptly notified 
every merchant alonjj Sui)crior strtct 
having wares and merchandise ex- 
hibited in stands on the sidewalk thit 
the obstructions would liave to be re- 

There was a little kicking- against 
order, particularly on the part of 
second-hand dealers, who are the leading 
offenders. The better class uf merchantf^, 
however, said that tEiey wMUld com[.ly 
with the order gladly. Anions: citiztns 
generally the order will undoubtedly 
meet with favor. At this time of the 
year the sidewalks, whU-h are too nar- 
row at best, are crowded, and sidewalk 
show cases and stands make walking in 
the business di.strict during the rush 
hours anything but pleai^ant. 

The new older is sweeping and in- 
cludes news stands, show cases of ill 
kinds and second-hand cl ithing. It will 
also be a relief to the police themselves, 
f jr the exposing uf mt-rcliandise opunly 
on the sidewalks encourages petty thefts 
and in the past few weeks has given th*' 
department a lot of extra work and tocjk 
valuable time tCiat shnild have beni 
devoted to more imr>ortant work. The 
department is handicapped in its work 
by an inadequate force, and goods on the 
sidewalk only add to the responsibility 
of the policemen on the beat, as well as 
the hoadquarters detectives. 

Another order which will be issued 
soon will be directed toward those who 
insist on making the principal business 
street a dumiiing ground for store 
sweepings and other refuse. For a time 
this was ctiecked under the former ad- 
ministration, but the oracticc is now in- 
.lulged in as much as ever. The stores 
are swept out in the mirning between 
n and 8 o'clock and the dust, dirt and 
water left in the street. On Alichigi'i 
street the stranger might easily bf loil 
to think he had gotten into the garbage 
dump instead of the prini-ipal ciimmis- 
sion street of the town, (^n Fift'.i av- - 
nue west some enterprising janitor y.x 
merchant recently dumped several 
.years' accumulation of old najK-rs and 
(lirt right on the avenue where people 
going to and from the dei>ots and the 
t)oslofTi(e can not helii but notic<> it. 

The new order, it is said, will be en- 
forced rigidly, and if the old onllnancc 
is not suRicient to prosecute the otTcnd- 
t rs a new ordinance will be passed. 


This evening Miss Blanche Walsh and 
.Melbourne MacDoueU will appear in a 
magnilicent production of Sardou's 
"Cleopatra" at the Lyceum and tomor- 
row afternoon will again present it. 
Owing to the great length of the pr<>- 
iluctitin it will begin at 8 o'«lock and 'i. 
.i'4-hick. TioMiiiTiiw e\'ening "Kedora." 
also by Sardou. will be the play. Thy 
s;ile i.r Seats has lieen Very large .inil 
large h<jiises are .1 certainty. 

"Cleopaira's"' spectacular effects are 
(■l.iiinei! lo l>e )insurpnss>d It.,' any other 
production now before the public, while 
ihe historical accuracy anil iis plots 
iiud aicessories in every detail are said 
to be a liberal education. The outlay 
invested in "t'leopatra" is said to be a 
capital of $00,00(1. Among the realistic 
scenes introduced, forming a group of 
tableaux of beautiful rounded symmetry 
accompanying the action of the play 
are the bark of Venus sailing on the 
Cyndus river, the palace of Uame.=es, 
the terrace of Memphis, the palace of 
Actiurn, the temple of Isis, the ante- 
chamber of Alexandria. The scene in 
the fifth act of the play, which repre- 
sents the storm which has been con- 
jured from the Nile by "Cleopatra," 
has been pronounced one of the finest 
stage effects ever seen. 

For the Great Herrmann's engage- 
ment in this city next Monday he will 
jnesent an entirely new program of 
magic, besides several startling illu- 
sions. The present tour Is said to be 
the most successful of all the success- 
ful tours of this remaikable man. In 
his com|)any are the four Luciers, 
styled the monarchs of the musical 
world, who play on musical instru- 
ments too numerous to mention with 
the skill of masters. Especially com- 
mended is J. R. Lucier, wh(* is totally

is so great as to thrill and electrify his

Lumberman Says That Is 

What This Will Be 


A lumberman says that Ihe lumber ."rea- 
son just clo.sed will go down In history us 
the tramp .seiiaon. There has never before 
been anything at all approaching the 
restlessness shown by the woodsm^Ji dur- 
In gihe winter. A large proi>orlion of them 
haye sjient the winter in a peniiatelic 
roiuiil of trips from camp to c.ami), working 
li.rt- awhile and then slkliiig out for the 
next camp. What lias possessed them 
has puzzled the lumbermen not a little. 
Sometimes th-e "grub" has bet?n the 
cause for change, for no self-respecting 
lumber jack will remain far long in a 
camp where the commissary Is not all 
that could be expected of it. But in most 
of the camps the food has been good, and 
as a matter of fact the bill of fare pre- 
sented In the average lumber camp is very 

One reason is that wages have been 
high, and It did not take so long to get 
enough money to provide for a good time 
spending it. With one variety of lumber 
jack this Is the cause of the change, for 
there is a class of woodsmen whose am- 
bition is wholly and completely eatlslied 
if they can eani enough money for a 
drunk. Kut these restless tramps are not 
the genuine old time lumber jacks, lumber 
men say. They are members of a new 
class, and one lumberman said that if 
the success of an employer depended uiion 
their staying when thev felt like leaving, 
they woukl pull out with as little com- 
punction as they would feel In eating 
their meals or taking a drink. Another 
lumberman said that he would not have 
been surprised to hear that Coxey's army 
had disbanded near this section during 
the winter, and the "soldiers" had made 
fur the lumber camps. 

"Our three camps when full employ 
about 200 men," said one lirmbermaii. 
"Uurin.g the past season we have had on 
f»ur time books 4<X> names, showing that 
the old time lumber .lack Is being super- 
seded by this mob. lint there are a few 
«if the old guard left. You will still find 
some of them in the camps. They cam"^ 
in last fall, and if the camp has not 
broken up thev are there yet. There Js no 
kick or comjilalnt from them, for they 
know their work and they do It wej[l.'

Scait of Distribution Is Loft to llio 

Berne, Switzerland, March 30.— Fol- 
lowing ir. the text of the decision of the 
Delagoa bay arbiters: 

"I.— The Portuguese government, as 
the defending party, is condemned to 
pay to the government of the United 
States and to Great Britain, the claim- 
ants, altogether, in addition to the 
j:2S,000 paid on account in 1890, the 
sum of 15,315,000 francs in legal Swiss 
money, with simple interest on this sum 
at the rate of 5 per cent per annum from 
June 1, 18!»St, up to date of payment of 
said sum. 

"II.— This sum after deducting what 
is necessary to defray the cost of arbi- 
tration, falling on the claimants and 
in addition to the balance of £28,000 
paid on account in 1890, shall be em- 
ployed in th paeyment of bondholders 
and other creditors, if there is need, of 
the Delagoa Bay Railway company, ac- 
cording to their standing. The claim- 
ants will draw up a scale of distribu- 
tion for this purpose. The Portuguese 
government will have to pay into the 
hands of the government of the United 
States the sum which, according to said 
scale, shall accrue to McMurdo, repre- 
sented by said government in her qual- 
ity of bondholding creditor of the first 
and second degree. It will pay the 
surplus to the government of Great 
Britain for the benefit of all others 
having rights. 

"HI.— The delay of six months fixed 
by the last line of clause IV of the ar- 
bitration compromise shall run from 
this day forth. 

"IV.— The costs of arbitration ac- 
cording to a scale to be drawn up in ac- 
cordance with clause IV of the arbitra- 
tion compromise, will be borne in equal 
parts by the three parties to the suit, 
that is to say, a third part by each of 

"V.— The conclusion of the parties 
in so far as they differ from the above 
award are set aside. 

"VI.— An authentic copy of the pres- 
ent award will be delivered through the 
intermediacy of the Swiss federal coun- 
cil to each of the three parties to the 

The award is unanimous. 

Tho Produoo Markot. 

It was quiet on "the street" yester- 
day, and there was but little change 
in the market aside from the reaction 
from Wednesday's weakness in eggs. 
They were held firm at 11 cents with a 

go<jd demand . 

« • • 

Navel oranges in the market are firm 
at $3.25 and $3..'i0, with an advance in 
prospect on shipments to arrive. The 
zenith of the season for navels has 
passed, and they will probably not 
touch a lower figure than above quoted. 

Seedlings will sOon begin to arrive in 
larger quantities, and the higher price 
of navels will stimulate the demand 
for them. They hold steady at present 

it $2.25 to $2.50. 

Apples are firm and short stocks all 
around assure their maintaining their 
unbending attitude.

Butter, cheese and poultry were un- 
changed, and throughout the vegetable 
list there were no changes. 


Dr. Koily and Miss Dorranco Will 
Dazzle the French. 

New York, March 30.— An 18-carat 
smile, as radiant as sunshine in the sub- 
treasury, swept across New York yester- 
day, bound eastward to the Paris fair. 
Xnminally it was in the hands of Dr. F. 
D. Kelly, of Peoria, 111., and was also 
accompanied by a pair of 2-carat bi- 
cuspids. The bicuspid ^-, however, were 
not in the hands of the doctor, but in- 
stead were in the mouth of Miss Mar- 
guerite Dorrance, his assistant. 

"I am still strongly attached to my 
teeth," Miss Dorrance explained, "or I 
v.ould be pleased to have Dr. Kelly ex- 
hibit them by hand. However, you may 
look at them." 

Here Miss Dorrance smiled. It was 
like the relief of Kimberley or a show- 
case in Tiffany's. In each bicuspid of 
the upper jaw a diamond was set — a 
large, glittering diamond. 

"Pretty, isn't if.'" she exclaimed, 
flashing a searchlight smile upon the 
assemblage. Just stick to us and you'll 
wear diamonds, tool" 

Out in Peoria, thanks to the doctor's 
efforts, nearly every one of any social 
distinction wears the family jewels in 
the molars, canines and bicuspids. It is 
so much safer than the ordinary way, 
because they can never be stolen while 
tho owner is asleep. The doctor defies 
any burglar to get away with Miss Dor- 
rance's heirlooms, or to steal his. The 
doctor has a few gems .set in his .aiolars, 
and many a man has been almo>« blin- 
ed by telling him a joke of tha Xoah 
vintage, or describing the funny 
thing his little boy said just that after- 

"Even the farmers out in Peoria have 
taken to having diamonds put into their 
teeth," said Dr. Kelly. "They come 
an-und and say they're feeling 'poorly,' 
but when I put in a few diamonds they 
feel better. John Hergot, the milliooiaire 
distiller, the only man that ever suc- 
cessfully fought the whisky trust, has 
eighty-five diamonds in his mofuth. 
Valentine Oelrichs, the big Peoria 
banker, has a mouthful, too; the Rev. J. 
V. B. Nevins, of the same town, sports 
his there, and Mrs. E. S. Easton, tha 
wealthiest woman in that section, has 
her teeth set all over with gems. There's 
Mrs. Lillian Browne, of Chicago, and I... 
B. Farnsworth, of Canton, 111., and Mrs. 
Sloane. of. Portland, Ore., who have any- 
where from twelve to twenty diamonds 
in their teeth, and every time they smile 
the gas bill is reduced. 

"Bob Fitzsimmons, the pugilist, is one 
of the latest." 

Burdock Blood Bitters gives a man a 
clear head, an active brain, a strong, vig- 
orous body— makes him fit for the battle 
of life. 


War Department Replies to tho 
Charges of Extravagance. 

Washington, March 30.— The olticers of 
the war department, taking notice of the 
CI iticism passed in the hoiKe during the 
discussion of the army bill on th.- alleged 
extravagance shown by the quarter- 
master's department in fitting up the 
Sumner, made public yesterday the rec- 
ord in the case, .showing the expendi- 
tures had been very much different from 
those stated. 

The war department statement shows 
that the count of the repairs at Xew 
Yorli was not $8000, as announced in 
congress, but $1945. The tumbler.? in the 
state rcjoms did cost 39 cents a piece, and 
pillow slips cost 14% cents. The state 
room doors glass cost 50 cents. The state 
hogany chairs cost $20 instead of ?15. As 
to these chairs it is declared that experi- 
ence has shown mahogany to be the very 
cheapest furniture that can lie used on 
shipboard in point of durability and cost 
of maintenance. The three big mirrors 
on the sidelward did not cost $1500, but 
w ere purchased for $12.50. The silver 
.service, which was said to have cost 
the government $8000, is only plated 
ware, and ail the plate on the ship for 
the use of 1500 men cost $1298. 


The first portion of a child's education 
is begun in the nursery, and a mother 
cannot be too careful with its manage- 
ment. She should be sure that those in 
rharge of the little folks are morally and 
phvsically pure. Children are imitative 
10 'a remarkable degree, and they learn 
ill manners and bad language and habits 
from those who care for them that they 
never forget, says Mrs. H. M. Beach, in 
the American Queen. 

A mothers duty to her children calls 
for her attendance upon them pretty 
nearly all of the time, and her influence 
is the guiding star of their lives. If she 
be gentle, patient, good and true, those in 
her care must grow like her; if she be 
nervous, impatient, changeful and irrit- 
able, those in her charge must be impu.- 
sive and unruly. . ^ . .-k , , 

When infanthood merges into childnooi 
one of the first things to be corrected by 
the careful mother Is the too easily ac- 
quired habit of spitefully criticising 
others, and one that leads in older girls 
to scandal and gossip. Charity and love 
are principles which the child should im- 
bibe from its earliest days, for only by 
their possession can they as children or 
as women be happy and healthy. 

Work is also a means to health and 
happiness. Keep the children busy, en- 
courage them to be so by being so your- 
self. The girl who helps mother to cook 
(and where is the child, however small, 
who would not deem this an exquisite 
privilege?)— the entire work of the house- 
hold, from the making of beds to the 
serving of dinner, can be taught in a like 
manner— is being educated for her mis- 
sion in life. She it is who will make the 
best wife, and the only wife worth hav- 
ing. She will be happy because her mind 
is occupied, and she will be healthy be- 
cause her work exhilarates her spirit. ^ 
and enables her to enjoy recreation and 
outdoor exercise: and a busy day results 
at night in quiet, refreshing sleep. 

Work, of course, should not be allpwed 
to interfere with study, and when a child 
goes to school and must prepare lessons at 
home its work should consist mainly In 

taking out-of-door exercise: and chiloren 
require abundance of it to keep them in 
good condition. They should have sut- 
ricient sleep, too, and their rest should be 
taken in well-ventilated rooms; for with- 
out plentv of fresh air everywhere no 
child can grow up happ.v and heJrlthy, 
and the value of health to all of us can- 
not be over-estimated. 

Ten thousand demons gnawing away at 
one's vitals couldn't be much worse than 
the tortures of itching piles. Yet there's 
a cure. Doan's Ointment never fails.

Washington. March 31.— An official of 
the state departmajit just returned 
from Brazil has fuwishcd some inter- 
esting details in regard to the recent at- 
tempt of a clique of Brazilian army of- 
ficers to incite a revolution and estab- 
lish a monarchial government there. 

The ijlan of action, the offi- 
cial says, was to create a mili- 
tary riot in front of ;he presi- 
dent's palace, during which 
Campos Sellas was to be as- 
sassinated, an officer of ih^

ruler and Brazil proclaimed 
a monarchy.

C. .f. GMlilic. the president of the Light 1 ationr. The questions are of such high 

fefct the more familiar we became with the 
actual conditions prevailing and with what 
was needed to rehabilitate it. Uoon a 
closer and more minute inquiry, it seemed 
impossible, or at ieast inadvisable, to at- 
tempt to raise the entire amount required 
to support the insular administration by 
a direct tax upon the people. 

"How are the revenues required for the 
support of the insular administration to 
be o()tained'^ Obviously In one of foiu' 
ways: First, by a direct approi)rlatlon 
from the treasury of the United States; 
ppcond. by a loan: third, by direct taxa- 
tion in the islands: fourth, l>y the imposi- 
tion of taHflf duties. 

"As to the first method propo.sed. the 
people of the I'nited States havt already 
liberally contributed from their treasury 
for the benefit f>f the Porto RIcans. They 
have done it with a generous hand, but in 
working out the Porto Rican problem it 
must not be understood that the I'orto Ri- 
<'ans are to be treated as mendicants 
They- must bear their full share of the bur- 
dens of civil government according lt» 
ll:eir capacity. 

"The second method of supplying llie 
in.^ular treasury, namely, by a loan, can- 
not be made effective until an insular gov- 
ernment is erected upon the island. 

"The third plan which has been pro- 
po.sed is impracticable for the 
Heretofore indicated. The imposition of 
additional direct taxes would, in the lan- 
j^uafee <.>f Davis, amount practically to 

"The fourth plan which has been pro- 
posed is that which for more than a cen- 
tury has been to most an acceutabitf 
method in the I'nited States, and thai i.? 
througii tile imjiositlon of the tariff 

"We rest the justification of the pending 
bill upon the broad and simple proposition 
thai it is The dut\ of to provide 
revenue for the territory belonging to It. 
and to provide it in a just and equitable 
manner. There is no jujwer save and ex- 
; cept congress which can leg-jslate for 
; Porto Rico. It is entirely within the com- 
ever for them, but to do so would be in 
' petency of the congress to aegisiate for- 
; contravention of the genius of our insti- 
tutions and contrary to the wishes of the 
congres's and the ixopie." 
Afttr pointing out that the proposed 
[ tariff shall ceaj^e absolute!;.- on March 1, 
j l!'i':i. and that as soon as the Porto Rican 
1 assembly s'nall have put into operation 
i a system of local taxation the commerce 
i>etween the island and the I'nited States 
shall be f r< e. Mr. Fairbanks concluded: 

"We should consider the subject l)efore 
t!s in no liberal or dogmatic spirit. N:» 
matter what shades of opinion there are 
with respect to the btst course to be pur- 
sued and the wisest measures to be adopt- 
ed with respect to Porto Rioo. there is per- 
fect unity of purpose among all parties 
liere to provide the most liberal form of 

under which 
may be prompted in the very highest de- 
gree. -her Welfare. 

"It is not gi\ en to infinite mind to read 
her future, but we may believe that, under 
tlie insjiiration of republican laws and 
under the impetus of American example, 
her peop'e will grow in knowledge, 
stronKth and power and forever bless tiie 
gleaL republic."

ttiuction of a dam across the Missis-

northern limits of Minneapolis, proceed- 
ed to the consideration of the fortifica-

that general debate upon the measure 
should not exceed two and one-half

$7,09:J,4S8. being $4,ei)5.-4G0 less than the

tor the ensuing year. The government, 
he siiid, manufactured l:i-inch guns 
cheaper by $10,000 than they ( >uld bh- 
purchased, and 10-inch guns $7500 

Mr. Shattuc, under the latitude 
allowed in general debate, followed with 
an hour's speech on general political 
topics, the tariff expansion and Southern 
ele?tion laws.

this amendment: 

"That the legislative assembly of

The amendment was lost. 1J> to 31. 

Mr. Fairbanks then addressed the

Errand of Ex-Jud|e Canty In the 

Minneapolis, Manh ."d.— It now de- 
volo|»s that the mission of former State 
Supreme Court Judge Thomas Canty in 
the Philippines has been to secure the 
direct shipments of Manilla hemp to 
Minnesota l>y way of the Japan Steam- 
ship company and the Great .Northern 
railway. Judge Canty went as the rep- 
resentative of the Slate prison board, 
which desired to have hemp laid down 
at the Stillwater penitentiary, where the 
hindiug twine factory is located, at a 
lower price than was possible when im- 
ported as formerly via the Suez canal 
and England. 

The new mute has made a surpris- 
ingly low rate from Hong Kong lo Min- 
nesota, and Judge Canty has already 
cabled an offer which makes the priee of 
Manilla here 2 cents under the New York 
market. None will be Imported until 
next year, however, as enough Mexican 
sis.ll for this year has already bten con- 
tracted for. 

Judge Canty Is now appointing agents 
in the Philippines to make these direct 
shipments, and it Is expected that rope 
and other cognate Industries will be 
established here as a result of the 
smaller « i^t of the raw material here 
than in the East. Arrangements have 
also been made hv the prison hoard fo"- 
the direct importation of Mexican sisal 
via Galvest.m Instead of New York.

Montana Senator Likely to Be 

Expelled By Practically 

Unanimous Vote. 


Democrats Are Hopeful of 

Winning In Rhode Island 

and Oregon. 

From The Herald 
Washington Bureau. 

Wa.shlngtm. March ;:i.— (Special to 
The Herald.)— The correspondent of 
The Herald has tiad interviews with Re- 
publican and Demo<ratic senators re- 
garding the (^lark case, which is still 
pending before the senate, and also in 
reference to the case of Matthew Stan- 
ley Quay, who was appolntetl to succeed 
himself by Givern<jr Stone of Penn.syl- 
vania. The Clark i-ase has tncupii d 
nearly all the time of the members of 
the committ«'e on privileges and elec- 
tions since the assembling of the Pffly- 
sixth congress. This committee has also 
had to deal with the cafle of Mr. Quay, 
and. barring argument to be made in the 
Clark case, this hard-worked committee 
is through with both Messrs. Clark and 
Quay, and will at least present ti the 
senate their findings in ttie Clark case. 
The proposed ratification of Governor 
Stone's appointment of Mr. Quay has 
already gone from the committee to the 
senate. It remains for the upper branch 
of congress to decide whether i>r not 
Mr. Quay shall be given his seat. As I 
have before stated, if a vote is reached 
on the Quay case before the adjourn- 
ment of the first session of tills congre.s.^, 
the Penn.sylvanian will be successful. 
It is doubtful, however, whether the 
senate a.s a body will be given an oppor- 
tunity befv>re the first session of this 
congress is at an end to vote as to 
whether or not Mr. Quay la entitled to 
hiS seat. 

The jircsent outlook is that the debal > 
over the Quay will drag aitmg for 
weeks to cotne. At the present time the 
opinion prevails in the senate that a v jte 
will not be rea<hed bef»)re the esnato 
adjourns for the usual summer recess. 
Mr. Quay, however. dtK^s not appear t > 
be at all disapjudnteil over the delav 
regarding his anticipating that th,- 
next Pennsylvanian legislature, strongl.v 
Republican as it will be, will elect, him 
to represent tlie Keystone state in the 
ITnited State.; .senate for six years fol- 
lowing March :'>, 19ol. 

So far as the Clark case is concerned, 
there has been so much scandal con- 
nected with it, and so much of the evi- 
dence has been adduced before the com- 
mittee on privileges during the past 
winter unfavorable to Mr. Clark, that 
the chances for his retaining his seat are 
not considered at all certain by his 
friends in and out of the senate, and his 
enemies predict freely that he will not. 
remain a member of ttie upper branch 
of the national congress longer than the 
en'd of ihe hist session of the Fiftv- 
sixth congress. The charges of bribery 
ma le against Mr. Clark befcue the cr:n- 
mlttee on privileges and ele<'tious were 
so strong in their entirety that the com- 
mittee will probably unanimously bring 
into the senate a report unfavorable to 
his retention as a setiator in this or any 
other congress. Ii i.-^. peitiaps. trUi- t.iat 
all the charges made against Mr. Clark 
have not been proved. The result of all 
this, however, will have little to do with 
the tlnal actiiui of the senate in his 
( ase. So many scandals have gro'.vn out 
of the wealth of I'nited States senators 
In the past that the wholesale purchase 
of metnbers of the last Montana legisla- 
ture b.v Mr. Clark, whether or not these- 
charges have been proven definitely, will 
result, it is said, in a vote on the i>art of 
the senat )rs practhally unanimous 
against his remaining as a senator from 
Montana in the I'nited Statt*s senate. 


The trottble over the Clark. Quay and 
other cases is going to work to the ad- 
vantage of the |H>nding measures i>rovid- 
Ing for the c leeti >n of Pniit d State s 
senators by direct vcde of the pe,ii»le. 
To have a law of this kind enacted will 
give the voters the same riglit to select 
senators as t.'iey have now in sele.-ting 
representatives. There are several bills 
pending in both hoU)<es of congress which 
deal with these matters, and while tSiey 
may not be passed at this session of this 
congress, will certainly be given .some 
onsideratlon at the next session.

The friends of Mr. Hryan. who will be 
the Democratic candidate for the presi- 
dency this year, seem to be satisfied that 
the election held in RhcMle Island will 
be favorable to the Democrats, and that 
the election following, in the state of 
Oregon, will also result in a Democratic 
victory. The recent tour that Mr. Bryan 
made of the West coast states, particu- 
larly in Oregon, will without doubt be 
of assistance to Democrats in that state 
and also in Washington and California. 
If the Democrats are victorious in Rhode 
Island and Oregon, the Democratic 
leaders here seem to be certain that it 
will aid them in furthering the chances 
of the Democrats in all other states In

The United Slates state dep.irtment 
has receive^ a very interesting report 
from (Jeneva. It stat.-s that within six 
months an electric street railway, pio- 
jecte<l by a citizen of San Franfisco and 
constructed by an American electrical 
engineer, will U^ in operation in Oeneva. 

.^ome two and a half years ago a Mr. 
Henry E. Butters, of San Prancisco. 
Cal.. who has been connected with the 
construction and exploitation of street 
lailways in Cape Town and the city of 
Mexico, was in Geneva. He found a 
congested population, badly .served by 
<dd-fa.shioned steam tramways and horse 
car.«. and the idea of .securing the control 
of the franchise of the principal com- 
panies and organizing a new company 
for the operation of a street railway 
system on the American plan at once 
occurred to him. The interest of local 
capitalists was enlisted, and in the of some months -Mr. Butters and 
his a.ssociates had secured a controlling 
interest in the Narrow (lauge Street 
Itallway company of tJeneva. which 
owns and operates some 44.74 miles in 
the city and sui)Urb.s. The projectors also 
secured an option on the franehise and 
property of the Companie Oeneialc de.^ 
Tramways Suisses, which owns and 
operated '.26 kilometers (IC.rifi miles) in 
the heart of the city and its environs. 
The price to be paid the right under this 
option is exercised, as it doubtless will 
be. is 6.r.0O,(Km francs ($l,2.'i4, :,(»(»). The 
pn'.jectors have also secured a federal 
charter, under the title of "Campagnle 
Ceneveise des Tramways Eleelriques." 
and olitained oncesshms to let their 
tracks on some of the finest streets and 
quays of the city, including the famous 
Rue" de Rohne and Quai des Bergues. 
Thev also secured the right to construct 
and <-perate a line on the fimous lake- 
side drive, from Geneva to Versoix, ,i 
distance of some 8% kilometers (r..44 
miles), past the fine villas and chateaux 
r)f the wealthy and aristocratic classes. 

rhe new company was organized wi:h 
a capital of .'V.OOU.OOO francs ($96r..00(>). 
but none of the stock has yet been is- 
sued or sold, although It has probably 
been largely apportioned. It is under- 
stood that the money for the construc- 
tion is being furnished by the Pans 
Hank of South Africa. Lcmdon c.ipitalist.^ 
are also interested in the venture, and 
it is likely that the new company in a 
short time will own and control all the 
street car lines in the city and Canton of 
Geneva. To put existing options into 
elTect, lo construct and equip all these 
lines on the American i»lan. and to ex- 
ploit the extra exclusive lights of the 
new c ompany will entail a total expen- 
diture of alM)Ut ir.,0<K),()00 francs ($2,89."..- 
ti(Mj). The ((mipany v.ould then have 
about 150 kilometers (!•.'> milts) of road 
traversing the city in every direc-iion 
ami serving the entire Canton. The 
ti tal population amounts to about 119. dO!). 
The Canton is next to the smallest of 
the Swiss Confederation, and has only 
aliout twelve square miles of territory. 
The lines would also cross the frontier 
into France, and would serve various 
small towns in the French departments 
of Haute Savwie and A in. 

The engineer under whose manage- 
ment and direction the new lines are be- 
ing constructed Is Stephen D. Field, of 
Vew York and Boston. The work is 
progressing, and 15 kilometers (9 miles) 
(»f track have been already laid. One. at 
least, of the new lines will be in opera- 
tion by June 1. The American overhead- 
liolley system is being used, and the 
American svstem of condiiits for under- 
ground cables, for the first time in 

The charter of the new company re- 
((Uires that the materials u.sed in con- 
struction l>e b«.Uf?ht ellhcr from Swiss 
manufacturers or fiom Swi.-s houses 
representing foreign manufacturers. 
This for the moment virtually bars the 
United States manufacturers, as no 
American concern has a Swiss agency. 
Up to this time all '-.^'l.s ha\e been 
bought in Germany, and all contract:- 
for the construction of cars have been 
placed with Swiss agencies of German 
builders. The lars. however, are Inking 
iiuiit on the American plan, and one car 
has, by fspeclal permission, been shipped 
here from the manufactory of the Brill 
company, in Philadelphia. France is 
largely furnishing the wire. The only 
American material that has yet been 
u.'^ed is the Hrown-Kdison plastic rail 

Although Geneva has a large water- 
power force for generating electricity, it 
is not believed that this plant will be 
able to furnish sulficient electric power 
for the new street railway. Mr. Field 
also thlzjks that the price ask'-d by the 
city— lUVj centimes (2% cents) per kilo- 
watt hour— is unreasonably high. lOlec- 
tricily can probably be produced by 
steam in Geneva for from 6 to s cen- 
times (1 1-fi to 1 .".-9 cents) per kilowatt 
hour, and .Mr. Field is willing lo pay s 
itntimes. The c|Uestion is yet to be ad- 

The tariff for street railway transpor- 
latinn in Geneva is fixed at 10 centimes 
(1 cents) per pas.-enger for the first kilo- 
meter (five-eighths of a mile) and .' 
centimes (1 cent) for each succeeding 
kilometer. Experts who have studied 
the situation do not doubt the profitable 
result of the enterprise. The company 
has an ofl[lce at No. 4S Threadneedle 
street, in L<mdon, but its stock is not yet 
issued and is not for sale. 


A Balloon That May Be Steered. 

This latest invention in the way of air 
ships is attracting great attention. The 
most wonderful thing about it is its 
simplicity. It is propelled by a small 
double petroleum motor, similar to that 
used in automobiles. Ordinary coal gas 
can tak the place of hydrogen for the 
purpose of filling the balloon, as only an 
hour is required for this work with gas, 
whereas hydrogen takes a day. This 
discovery ought to make the road 
through the heavens as free from danger 
as does Hosteller's Stomach Bitters the 
road through life. Behind it lie fifty 
years of cures. Weakness, indigestion, 
dyspepsia, debility, nervousness, consti- 
pation, malaria, or any disease arising 
from a weak stomach cannot withstand 
it. It is an excellent Spring tonic.

Question Validity of Call For Sioux 
Falls Convention. 

Chicago, March 31.— A special to the 
Record from Omaha, Neb., says: The 
executive committee of the anti-Fusion 
Populist party issued an appeal to the 
people today protesting against the 
validity of the call for the Sioux Falls 
national convention and notifying all 
Populists that only those who recog- 
nize the Cincinnati convention will be 
countenanced in party councils during 
the campaign. The courts here today 
sustained the contention of the anti- 
fusion faction of the Peter Cooper Popu- 
list club to its sole right to that title.

Chili Gold Mining Company Wants

Another new achievement of the woii- 
derful electric light bug, Belostonia Ain- 
encanum. which is in many respect.-; inc 
most remarkable insect known lo science, 
has been reported to the Smithsonian In- 
stitution bv 11. J. Giddings. an entomol- 
ogist of Iowa, who discovered one of lUem 
In a creek near Sabula. says the New- 
York Sun. The extraordinary feature ot 
the mailer is that the bug was manitai.i- 
Ing itself underneath thick Ice with the 
temperature at 10 degrees bel'jw zero. 
When captured it was alive and sturdy. 
The electric-light bug has been a soutce 
of astonishment and admiration to ento- 
mologists since they rtrst began to study 
it. It Is a water bug, an air bug and a 
land bug. Its original eiemenl is th? 
water. It is a powerful swimmer and .i 
lierce Hnd ferocious hunter. destroyinR and 
devouring water larvae, and even litt.e 
tisnes. On land It moves slowly, but 
determinedly, keeping to the straight 
line which it regards as its manifest des- 
tiny, and surmounting an object only 
when it is convinced after repeated trials 
that it cannot push through it. 

As an aeronaut this insect is a wonder. 
To see it in water or on land, with its 
shiny, bony carapace closed over Its 
wings one "would never suppose that it 
could mount Into the upper air; yet in 
early summer It swarms by hundrcu.^ 
around the electric lights, whirring iu 
insane courses and its hanl- 
shelled head against the brilliant g.oiv?. 
she.tering the light from which it takc-s 
its popular name, it is a night traveler 
and spends Its days beneath ihe surfacf- 
of waters. Sometimes one of these bugs 
will decide to migrate, and driven by the 
desire to travel will go long distances 
over country HI supplied with water. In 
lieu of running streams aivd lakes it will 
sojourn In cisterns. A remarkable and 
tfell-autlreutlcated experiment was made 

two years ago with on«^ of these bugs 
by a Southern naturalist. The insect, 
which was a very iarge adult, was eaught 
in a cpiarry waier-hole in a Southern 
state, was in.arked lor Idenlilicalion and 
put baek. 

"That insec:." said the naturalist to 
his eompanion. "is probably journeymg 
north. If it kc-ep.-; to the straight line it 
won't tlnd water short of eighteen miles 
and wc- ought to fi:nl It in some cis;« rn iti 
the town of tomorrow morning. " 

To th" town named thiv w"ii?. niid not 
in a cistern, but in a larne wan r-butt 
near the center of the little town, they 
found their released captive. That water- 
butt was the only open water In the place 
and the marvellous instinct of the insect 
had directed it to the only place where 
it could lind the tiroper c-on.litions for its 
(lav's re!«t.

Mrs. M. A. Greeley, Sandstone, Minn.: 
"Dr. Doran's New Treatment for Ear Dis- 
ease is just wonderful. I did not believe 
that she could ever be cured of her jear 
trouble, for deafness and discharging 
ears, as everybody knows, was always con- 
sidered Incurable. 

"But 1 want to tell everybody with deaf- 
ness or discharging ears that Dr. Doran's 
Treatment Is NEW. It is entirely different 
from the old method. It restored her hear- 
ing and entirely stopped the disgusting dis- 
charge. I was in the city only a few days 
for special office treatments, and then re- 
turned home and continued with home 

WEAK EYES loiher Diseases 

I had been troubled with my eyes for 
more than ten years when 1 began treating 
with Dr. Doran. My eyes would water. 
smart and were a.lways red like raw beef. 

All curable medical and surgical dis- 
eases, acute and chronic catarrh, diseases 
of the eye. ear. nose, throat, lungs, liver 

i was to Chicago, St. Paul and Minneapo- ^-^^ stoinach treated and cured by mod- 

lls for medical aid. but none of those great 
specialists could do anything for me* un- 
less I laid off work for six months or took 
up some other occupation. I made a few 
visits to Dr. Doran's office, and then con- 
tinued with his home treatment for five 
weeks. Now I am pleased and thankful 
that my eyes feel as strong and clear as 

they ever were, and did not lose one days 
work. It is a pleasure to recommend Dr. 
Doran's treatment." (Signed.)

totally deaf when I went to Dr. Doran. so 
deaf that I could not hear my son speak 
to me. When he wished to communicate 
anything to me he would have to write to 
me. I did not want to live If I had to be 
so deaf. So I went to Dr. Doran and he re- 
stored my hearing. Now I can hear or- 
dinary conversation without difficulty." 

Cancers and Tumors. 

Only curable cases taken. The new

Mayor Hugo is deserving of coin- 
niendation for deciding U> have all the 
obstructions nn the sidewalks on Su- 
I)erior street removed anil to i)revent 
the dumping of refuse into the street. 
This is a matter that should have been 
attended to long ago, and The Herald 
hopes that the order issued by the 
mayor will be strictly enforced ami 
that, if it be found that the present 
city ordinance dealing with the sub- 
ject is defective, the aldermen will 
promptly amend it so that the mayor's 
Ideas may be carried out to the letter. 

Stands and show cases, cigar adver- 
tising signs and all other obstructions 
of any kind should be removed from 
the sidewalks. Not only will the appear- 
ance of the street be greatly im- 
proved, but there will be more rooiii 
for pedestrians and the crowds of people 
in the business district are now so great 
that all the sidewalk room that can be 
secured is needed. 

Last summer there was an attempt 
made to euforLC the ordinance against 
throwing store sweepings and other re- 
fuse into the street, but it was only a 
spasmodic effort, and it was claimed the 
ordinance did not give sufficient au- 
thority to the police on this point. If 
this be true ordinance should be 
piviniptly amended, and then it should 
be strictly enforced. Arrest and fin.j 
those who violate It, and the violations 
will soon cease. It will be found cheaper 
ti obey the law than ilisregard it. 

Let Mayor Hugo keep up this good 
Work and he will earn the th.inks of tin 
whole community.

Interviews with a 
nunilier of consum- 
ers of iron jind sl-'ol 
regarding the sta- 
bility of the p:eseiit 
liigli prices are printed In a New Yi>rk 
cimmercial paper. Naturally the Inter- 
ests of those interviewed lie on the side of 
a colIai)se In the market, and conse(iuenily 
It is not surprising that they predict an 
«arly and emphatic decline. But they may 
be badly a.siray on thi:i point. They claiai 
that iirodiicilon is already lUjtrunnIng de- 
mand, and that private concessions from 
tile published prices of the Iron and steel 
combinations are becoming the rule. A 
few months ago buyers dlthculty in plac- 
j iiiK their .irders. and they liad to pay fall 
scheiliile prices. Now It Is the mills whiih 
jire beginning to compete for business. One 
of tlie large New York builders .says that 
while nominally prices for building Iron 
and steel remain ab..ut as curing the past 
ft w months, actually there has been n 
drop of $.') a ton. and he predicts a serious 
break by the month of June. On the other 
hand, the combination managers say this 
Is out of the (luestion. They assert that 
they are bound by coniracts up to the 
middle of next .vear to pay Jo.iJO a ton fur 
iron ore, or $.'!.r> above the former price; 
that coke Is 12 higher, transportation tVir 
ore is higher, and wages are higher; in a 
word, that the lusts of manufacturing iron 
make it impossible for thi'm to reduce 
prices for a year or more at least. But tlie 
m^n who are bearing the market laugh at 
this argument, and say the combinallons 
control the ore mines, and the hard and 
fast contracts at $j.r.O a ton hav<' been 
made by themselves to them.selves— which 
is close to the trutii of the matter.

The trusts will be 
one of the leading 
Issues of the com- 
i n g presidential 
campaign, and In 

some parts of the country at least it Is 
likely to overshadow all other questions. 
There Is no doubt that the Democratic 
national platform will contain a strong 
anti-trust plank and that the party lead- 
ers will Insist that the only way in which 
the people can obtain relief from the op- 
presions of the trusts Is by electing a Dem- 
ocratic president and congress. The Re- 
publican convention will also adopt an 
anti-trust resolution, although Mark Han- 
na has said that he considers trust as good 
things and the Republican majority in 
congress has dine nothing up to date to 
curb the power of these combinations. Of 
what value will the liepublican platform 
protestations bo, if the party fails now. 
when It has the opportunity, to enact the 
legislation dealing with the question. The 
AVashlngton Post, when the election of W>8 
had assured Republican ascend< ncy in 
both houses of the Fifty-sixth congress, 
mentioned as one of the important duties 
that would devolve upon that body, the 
accomplishment of .some practical anti- 
trust legislation. It was evident then, and 
it has become more .apparent every day 
since that time, that tlie trusts would be 
one of the leading Issues of the presiden- 
tial campaign. The Post suggested then, 
and has ever since persistently uiged the 
necessity of depriving monopolistic combi- 
nations of any chance for shelter behind 
tariff schedules. As a consistent advucate 
of tho doctrine of protection, the Post has 
protested against this abuse, and it is now 
again urging congress to take ru tion am! 
reduce, but not in all cases destroy, the 
schedules thus outrageously abus^. It 
aays: "What is congress going to do in 

times we repeat it— what we want is not 
alms, but justice and liberty and 

Porto Rico was prosperous under 
Spanish rule. Its days of depression 
and misery and starvation date from 
the signing of the treaty of peace neg')- 
tiated at Paris, which closed the old 
markets where its products were sold, 
and the failure of the McKinley admin- 
istration, in violation of the American 
constitution, to open the markets of all 
the ITnited States to our newly-created 
American citizens. 

Let the News Tribune and Judge Mor- 
ris and the other defenders of the larift 
bill read the p>werful speech delivered 
by Senator Davis in favor of free trade, 
and they will .'.v how w-.'ak is their own 
position and how ml.<»erable are tlie 
"reason.s" that they have offered in favor 
of the bill. The New York Kvening Post, 
speaking of this speech, says: "Sen- 
ator Davis' speech was a trenchant ex- 
posure of the miserable makes.hift which 
the administration has at last wormed 
it.self around to urging as the proi>er 
party measure t.> pass for Porto Rico. 
He called it '.a pernicious m>ckery of a 
tariff,' and asked Senator Foraker if he 
wanted to go on the stump and defend 
a bill which could truthfully be said to 
leave rum free while taxing flour. The 
Ohio senator was observed to 'wince' 
under this thrust, and no wonder. S;'n- 
ator Davis speaks for the larger senti- 
ment of the Northwest, which is now in 
open revolt against the protective doc- 
trine in excelsis that denies the rights 
of humanity and the sanctions of moral- 
ity. Mr. Davis has evidently burned -his 
ships behind him on this question, and 
his speech must have created a great 
and lasting influence." 

Outside of the News Tribune and the 
officehclders' trust that feels it necos- 
.sary to sneeze whenever Judge Morris 
takes snuff, there are very few Republi- 
cans who do HDt endorse the stand taken 
by Senators Davis and Nelson. 

TliK fAHK OV yiAVKtlff. 

Calling ex-Consul Macrum a fool, as 
does the News Tribune, will not wipe 
out the insult that was offered to the 
Ignited States by the censjr 
opening letters addressed to the T'nited 
States consulate at Pretoria. Macrum 
probably mad»* a mistake in not staying 
at Pretoria, and he acted rather foolishly 
when he returned to thi,'? country and 
visited the state department. The Brit- 
ish government, however, has made an 
apology, and that will end the affair sj 
far as it is concerned. 

But neither the unwise acti)ns of 
Macrum nor the apology by the Britisij 
authorities furnishes an excuse for thv 
failure of Secretary of State Hay t.i 
stand up for the right of our diplomatic 
correspondence and letters between 
American consulates. In ofllcial en- 
velopes, I) be free from the censhrship 
of British oflicials. It does not appear 
that Secretary Hay took any notice >f 
the matter, and that the Britirfi author- 
ities acted of their own volition in 
offering an apology. 

If James O. Blaine had been secretary 
jf state, there would have been a prompt 
demand for an apology and a stern In- 
sistence on the inviolability of American 
diplomatic letters from the prying eye.« 
of British censors. Hay Is too much of 
an Anglomanlac to be a virile American 
secretary of state. 

A.\oTiif^i: ABHvnn yak\. 

The Morris organ does not do Speaker 
Henderson a kindness when It draws at- 
tenti<m i.i the absurd statement in a 
recent letter in defense of the Port 1 
Rican tariff bill that "the flour Inter- 
ests," among others, are "trying to get 
into Porto Rico without paying the IJ 
per cent on their product, as pnposed in 
the bill." 

Probably neither Speaker Henderson 
nor the News Tribune would have in- 
dulged in such ridiculous asserti.>ns 
had they knoAn that the total annua! 
exports of 'lour from this country to 
Porto Rico do not equal one day'.s 
output of the mills at Minneapolis. 

This story is as silly as the claim made 
by Judge Morris that the tobacco anci 
.sugar trusts are fighting for free tra le 
with Porto Rico, when it is well known 
that they have had at Washington on<' 
of the most piwerful lobbies ever se-jn 
there, liberally supplied with boodle, to 
secure, if po.ssible, the passage of iht 
tariff bill, and that some of the mem- 
bers of congress have succumbed to the 
"influence" of this lobby. 

Does the News Tribune, which treat,'* 
the sacred promise of the United States 
t3 the Porto Ricans as made only to be 
broken and has no regard for the preser- 
vation of the honor and good faith of 
this country, believe that Senator 
Davis is in favor of free trade becau.^e 
the trusts want it? Does it accuse Sen- 
ator Nelson of pandering to "the flour 
interests" when he insists that there 
shall be free trade between all people.^ 
over whom the American flag waves? 

Nothing more is needed to show the 
rottenness of the whole affair, to prove 
that the tariff bill as It passed the house 
is indefensible, than the efforts of tile 
Republican leaders to amend it in the 
senate, so as to make it palatable to the 
countr>'- The latest McKinley compro- 
mise, which Senators Foraker and 
Hanna are trying to get through the sen- 
ate, is a confession that the house bill 
is utterly indefensible. Those who de- 
fend this miserable compromise, which 
does not change the real character of 1 
the oppressive measure, and who attempt . 
to throw the veil of charity over thu j 
w hole two-faced and apologetic affair j 
by talking about the relief of the starv- t 
ing by our generaus gifts of food, should j 
not forget the scornful comment of a 1 
Porto Rican newspaper: "A thousand I 

All the heads of staff departments In 
the United Stales army now hold the rank 
of brigadier genera!. The question arises 
wliy the quartermaster general, the com- 
missary general, the surgeon general and 
the chief of ordnance should not be made 
major generals, as well as the adjutan. 
general? Gen. Corbin deserves the pro- 
motion no more than the others. And if 
he should be promoted, a movement foi 
the promotion of the others would soon 
follow. When all had become major gen- 
erals, th«' spectacle would be presented 
of the heads of the staff departments 
holding as high rank as the commande. 
nf the army himself. The only logica 
ihing to do In this case, says the Spring 
Held Republican, is to check Corbln's set 
llsh effort for promotion for hlmsel; 
.i!one, or to make all the heads of stafi 
departments major generals, and tlu 
commander of the army, who at jiresen. 
Is Gen. Miles, a lieutenant general. 

The Chicago Times-Herald, one of th( 
leading Republican newsjiapers In th» 
West, s.-iys: "Amazement and Ind.gna 
tlnn sweep over the country as day afiei 
day the Republican majority In the sen- 
ate dodges the straight and bonorabh 
path of duty to Porto Rico and wander.^ 
in the tortuous ways that can only leai 
to national dishonor and party olsasler 
The compromise bill Introduced Hy Sena- 
tor Foraker is a hodge-podge of dislngen- 
ulty. It makes a smug pretense of doing 
something for the relief of Porto Rico, 
while denying the essential principles of 
local taxation and untrammeled Inter 
coarse with tho rest of the United States 
;iiat are absolutely necefsary if the Island 
is not to be a perpetual thorn in our na- 
tional policy." 

Tbe Toronto Globe sees In the favor with 
which the West welcomes the improve- 
ments In the St. Lawrence transportation 
route a warnliig of the probable abandon 
ment of the Erie canal. The fact that, 
notwithstanding the state commerce and

waterways, and that Governor Roosevelt 
was more interested In this maltoi tlia:i

Dear Sir: 

Are you close-fisted ? We hope not: a man who is close-fisted is usually too 
mean for his own good. Do you know that some men insist on their wives buying 
cheap Kitchen Utensils, and they honestly believe they are saving money. 

Other men are close-fisted, who are not in the least mean: they are simply careful, 
and when they insist on everything that comes into the house being of the very best: 
they know that it means money saved. You may pay a little more for the COLUMBIAN 
Enamel Ware, but you get our guarantee with every piece, and if it gives out inside of ^ 
one year, you get a new piece without charge. 

Do you know that one of the most important things about a house is the stove ? 
Nothing can cause so much trouble in so short a time as a poor baking stove or range. 
If your stove is not baking well, drop us a postal: we will take it away and put in its 
place a RADIANT HOME Range, and at the end of thirty days if you are not satisfied 
with it we will put your old stove back in place and it will not cost you a cent. But if 
you are pleased with the RADIANT HOME, you can pay for it and we will allow on 
the purchase price whatever we can get for your old stove. 

Do not forget that we want your trade, and if GOOD GOODS and fair prices 
will get it, we will have it. . . Yours very truly,

The Washington Star reafflrms the ai:- 
ihenticity of the Interview with a Repub- 
lican congressman (name withheld* who 
charges that the Porto Rican tariff bill 
was framed out of deference to Interests 
that are heavy subscribers to campaign

"malicious lie." yet it comes from a Re- 
publican congressman through a Repub- 
lican newspaper. 

The Chicago Tribune has discovered a 
reaction against co-education. Its evi- 
dence, however, appears to be confined to 
Wesleyan university at Middletown, and 
the Morgan Park academy of the Univer-

for some unexplained reason, has Just

the senate committee in new habiliments,

old tariff clause in it.

Board of Fire Commissionir Think 
Mill Should Bo Btttor Paid. 

At the joint meeting of the board of 
fire commissioners and the fmance and 
tire committees of the council, held last 
evening, it was decided to recommend to 
the council on Monday evening that in 
fixing the salaries for the next year, an 
increase of $5 a month be made on tr.e 
present salaries of all employes connected 
with the lire department, irrespective of 
rank. * 

It is thought i>robabIe that the council 
will grant the advanc-e for the low salary 
paid ih.' Duluth tiremen is notorious, aiuJ 
Cliief Black time and again has urged <.,i 
the tire commissioners some di'tinile ac- 
lion. as it is itractic-ally impossible i ' 
keep skilled labor in tlie dei»arlm<nt 
when it can make much iiigher vvagc-s 
elsewhere, and is ncjt subject to service 
at all hours of the day and night, and 
seven days in a week. 

The chief reported that thirteen fires 
had been responded to daring the pas: 
month with a loss of $37(» against an in- 
surance value of $S9.(¥¥K The board aSo 
took up the matter of frame bulldinj^s in 
the lire limits and turned down an ap!)li- 
cation of J. Wiikie to be allowe<i 
build a front and a rear and a roof over 
a vacant place adjoining his iireseiit 
grocery store at 20:? East Superior street. 
It is probable too that the board ina.v 
later take definite action in re^ani to t!ie 
large number of frame barns that hnve 
been erected in the lire limits without ix r- 
mission and in violation of the tire limit

The Spring Medicine 

The wisest men on earth devote them- 
selves to keeping and saving lives of others. 

Man's sublirr.e^t study is man. - 

The greatest wisdom of e.xpericnced men, 

The most valuable vegetable remedies, 

The best skill of modern times. 

The most approved methods of the 
present day— are all, ALL combined in 

prove sufficicnt.yct niore can truly be said: 
It has stood the severest tests of any med- 
icine ever made by mortal man. It has been 
more largely sold, more widely used, and 
has accomplished more wonderful cures 
of scrofula, catarrh, etc., than any other. 

Therefore it is the plain truth— Hood's

interesting Tax Case In Mer- 
cer County— Wills County 
For Glaspell. 

Mandan— In isyo the- North D.iiiota ic;;is- 
lature passed a law creating wh;c was 
known in common parlance^ "ihe slate of 
Stark. ' Incidentally, in the same law, 
it added considerable territory to Join- 
ings and Mercer counties. For two or 
three years these counties exfreist-a civil 
jurisdiction over this added territory, and 
eoilected taxes from iis inhabitants: but 
in ]^ys a test case reached the supreme 
court, and that tribunal decidAJ that the 
law of 1S95 wa.'? unconstitutional. In 1>:<'.» 
the legislature passed a law providing 
that all territory wdthin the stale over 
which any county had exercised jurisdic- 
lio.n in civil and criminal mailers, a:id 
wincii had for ad intents and purposes 
been treated as a port:on of such county 
for not less than two years past, "shali 
be. and the same is hereby, declared a 
part of such county." Further on. an.v- 
:hing that had l>een done in the way of 
taxation was ratiJied. 

The attorneys in their attack upon tiie 
lsr«5 boundary law contended it was uii- 

•onstitutlonal for several reasons. The 
-upreme court only considered one— namc-- 
ly. the defect in the title. The other 
tirounds alb'ged were not passed upon by 
the court. "The opponents of the law in- 
sist that unorgaiuzed territory cannot be 
ibsorbed in the manner proposed — that

luestion. The 1S95 law being uncons:ilu- 

ional, no vote taken thereunder would

tpainst the sale, and contends that the 
"ounty and school taxes that are charged 
igalnst these horses are invalid— that he 
's onlv subject to state taxes. The mat-

The street sprinkling season is not 
likely to begin before the first of May 
this year. The Ixiard <»f publl;" works 
rfjinried ihe sprinkling distrifl.-^ to tho 
council two weeks ago. but no action wag 
i:ikf'n. and owing to the meshes of red 
lii|>e through which the proceedings must 
I'ass it will be fully a month before the 
< ."niraf-t.-^ <aii !>«• let. The council has lo 
rcpiirt back lo the board, the boanl llg- 
uifs out the assessment and reports 
back t(» the council, the council reports 
back to the Ixiard again, and the l>oard 
advertises the contracts for ten days. 
Then the board reports the contract to 
the council and the council reports it 
back to the board, and about ten days 
after that the sprinkling carts begin to 
make the crossings sloppy. 

The sprinkling districts this year will 
be about the same as last. The first dis-

Lakeside Citizens Cenfident 

ef Improving Jefferson 

SIreel and Gar Service. 

Lakeside citizens feel greatly elated 
over the prospects of opening Jeffers.»n 
street from Tw«*niy-second to Forty- 
fourth avenues. The city engineer has 
made an estimate of the cost of the 
improvement and .says that it will be 
about )18,025. including grading, stone 
culverts and engineering to- build an 
18-foot roadway. 

This morning the officials of the street 
railway company took up the matter 
and announced that If Jefferson street 
was opeijed the company would, with 
the consent of the city, place Its tracks 
on Jefferson street instead of East Su- 
perior street. This Is to avoid the two 
long hills east of Twenty-first avenue 
and would lessen the grade about 12li 
feet. Receiver Mendenhall says that in 
case the city goes ahead with the im- 
provements on the present roadbed to 
meet actual requirements and then put 
In entirely new, heavy steel and elec- 
trically welded tracks on the Jeffer- 
son street extension. 

The Lakeside citizens committee met 
late this afternoon in the office of E. C 
Little and seemed very enthusiastic 
over the prospects of having the Im- 
provement made. It is reported on very 
good authority that a canvass of the 
aldermen shows a safe majority in the 
council favoring the extension, but the 
question of financing the scheme may 
cause a great deal of difficulty. 


Commtiidf d on All SIdM as Inltrast- 
inf and Inttnietivai 

The lectures at the high school As- 
sembly hall on "Greek Art" by Profes- 
sor Lorado Taft next Tuesday and 
Wednesday evenings, promise to be a 
rare treat. The subjects of the lec- 
tures are "The Art of Phidias" and 
"Praxitells and Those Who Followed," 
and will be illustrated by a stereopti- 
con brought from Chicago for the pur- 
pose. Mr. Taft is the president of the 
.Society of Western Artists, a lecturer 
at the Chicago art Institute and for the 
extension department of the university 
of Chicago. As a student he spent 
many years in Paris and since his re- 
turn in 1886 has established a position 
for himself in art matters which is rec- 
ognized everywhere. He comes here 
under the auspices of the Ladies' Litera- 
ture class. When looking about for a 
lecturer on Greek art. the ladies re- 
ceived letters from prominent lecturers 
in New York, Boston. Philadelphia and 
San Francisco suggesting that if Lor- 
ado Taft could be secured, which they 
doubted, be ti-ould be found to be by 

far the most desirable man in this part 
of the country and one of recognized 
authority in art. Commendatory press 
notices have come from all over the 
country where Mr. Taft has lectured 
and all speak of his jileasant address, 
sharp wit and fine sense of artistic cri- 
ticism and fcelin.i;.

"Hello, Central!" 

"Number, please." 

"Give me the sheriff's office, No. 53." 


"Did you get them yet?" 

"Not yet. Central." 

"I'll ring again." Another pause. 

"Did you get them yet?" 

"No, Central. What's the matter?" 

"Ttiey won't answer. I can't get 

There were probably a number of con- 
versations somewhat similar to the 
above carried on over the lines of the 
Duluth Telephone company today. In 
which attempts were made to get some 
of the offices at the court house by tele- 
phone, and. in each case the result was 
the same. There was no answer, and 
central had to give It up In disgust. 
This did not mean, however, that every- 
body at the court house was out on a 
vacation, or that the county officers and 
their employes are negligent in answer- 
ing the telephone rings. The reason for 
it was that the rings sent by central 
toward the court house petered out at 
the ends of wires unconnected with in- 

The opening gun In the fight over the 
te'ej'hone question was fired by the 
beard of county commissioners at th'? 
court house this morning. Orders were 
given to disconnect all of the 'pthones of 
the old company, and inside of half an 
hour after the order was given the deed 
was done. Engineer Cowden went t^ie 
rounds with a pair of pinchers and a 
step-ladder, detaching the wires from 
every instrument belonging to the old 
company in the building. This is pur- 
suant to the agreement made with the 
new company that it was to have exclu- 
sive Admission to the court house. It 
will be rerhembered that the ZeniOh Tele- 

phone company offered its Instruments 
to the county for $20 apiece. $10 than 
the regular rate, on condition that they 
be the only Instruments In use at the 
Cviurt house. The board accepted this 
proposition, and today Is the end of the 
quarter for which the county has paid. 
That was the cause of th« order to cut 
off the old 'phones, and is why it 
is impossible to reach tne county offices 
uvt 1 il;em today.

Humortd In tha Baliaff That iha 
Russian Thrana Is His. 

About 10 o'clock this morning a well- 
dressed man, about 50 years of age, came 
into the lobby of the Hotel Spalding and 
asked to see Mclvor-Tyndall, whose 
wonderful revelations of the hand are 
causing so much sensation in Duluth. 
He was shown to Dr. Mclvor-Tyndall's 
parlors, with others who were waiting. 
Soon his peculiar actions aroused the 
attention of those present, and Mclvor- 
Tyndall's private secretary was sent 

On being presented to the noted au- 
thority on the study of the hand, the 
man extended his palm, saying: "I sup- 
pose you can see there that I am the 
czar of Russia." 

Mclvor-Tyndall glanced at the hand a 
moment and noticed that, while the form 
of the hand was of the square type, th? 
line of head was abnormally placed, 
sloping far down on the Mount of Luna, 
and that the Mount of Saturn was much 
developed, plainly indicating insanity to 
the person versed in the mysterious 
sciences of palm reading. 

Of course the only thing to do was to 
humor him, for while he seemed to be 
jierfectly rational upon every other 
topic, he was evidently firmly convinced 
of his right to the throne of Russia. 

When Mclvor-Tyndall explained that 
as all the people present would have to 
be attended to before he could hope to 
have the honor of an interview with his 
imperial majesty, the pseudo ruler of all 
the Russians decided not to tt'alt, but 
sedately talked down the stairs.

Duluth Telephone Company 

Mortgagees Enjoin the 

City of Duluth. 


Temporary Writ Is Issued— 

Law Upon Which the 

Company Relies. 

Tlie flght has begun. 

Th»« Duluth T<'loph<>no oampany tothiy 
began suit in the ITnited States cli-cuit 
fourt t«i prevent the city authoritii's 
from ejecting it from the city of Duluth. 
and has .secured an injunction restrain- 
ing the v-ity from interfering with it.s 
system. This injuncti >n was served on 
the ofllcers .)f the city of Duluth today. 
It restrains the city from in any way 
removing or interfering with ti>e poles 
or wires or any part of the system on 
the streets or alleys of the city of Du- 
luth. The attorneys arn Hillson, C'jiig- 
don & Dicliin.son. 

As has been ejected, the company is 
relying for its right to continue busi- 
ness in the city of Duluth on the law of 
the legislature which |>ermits telegraph 
and telephone companies to ush tihe pub- 
lic road.* and highways of the state. 

The ca.«e under which the injunction 
was sec-ured is entitled (.J irdon Abbou 
and Hands II. Hart against the city of 
Duluth. They are represented to be the 
holders of m>.rtgage bonds of the com- 
pany l.ssued about Jan. 1, 1900, for th" of extending and improving the 
plant. The mortgage i... claimed to b- 
a lien on the plant, and the court is 
asked to protect the holders from dam- 
age at the hands of the city. 

The comoiaint sets up the organiza- 
tion of the Duluth Telephone company 
under the laws t*f Minne.sota, and say.^ 
that it is the sjime corporation referred 
to in *ii' special ac, .-^tMrnved March 7. 
l.SHl. This is the act of the legislature 
which granted a to the Duluth 
Telephone company to do business in 
the city of Duluth. T^ie company was 
then organized and proceeded to builtl 
and o|»>ratc i .'-ystem in Duluth. The 
company is lepresentei] i . have today in 
the city of Dulutli Upwards of looo niiles 
of wire. liMMi instrunu rits. and also wins 
connecting Dulu'.h '•• ith Superior. Carl- 
ton. ('lo,juet and I'roctorknoit. It Is 
claimed that the entire plant has beeJi 
erected since the passage of chapter 7:! 
of the laws of 18S1, wUich Is represented 
to be amendatory t > cha|>ter :{4 of th. 
laws of 1S78 and the law of March 7. 
1N81, and It is claimed that it was done 
in n liance upon the franchises con- 
ferred by those acts. 

It is alleged that the city threatens to 
unlawfully cut down and remove the 
poles and wires of the company and in- 
terfere- with its system, that the city 
c oun^il h.;s oideied its removal by April 
I. This .ulion is c-laimed to be based not 
upon the exercise of any police powers, 
defects in the system, etc.. hut because 
the clt> has li:en>ed a new c-ompany to 
build a system which is in no way su- 
periiir to the Duluth Telephone com- 
pany's, and that the whcjle interference 
re-Its on the false and unlawful cl.aim 
that tne Duluth Tel« phone company has 
no right to do business in the city of 

The court is asked for a writ of in- 
junction against interfering with any 
part of the system on the streets oi 
alleys of Duluth. .A temporary writ was 
granted. The city must appeir l)y th- 
llrst Monday in May. and then has until 
the first Momlay in June to answei. 

The law under whieh the coinpanv 
c laims to he entitled to continue i.n busi- 
ness in Duluth is section 42. of c-hapter 
34 of the laws of 1S7S, as amended by 
c hapter 7;! of the laws of IS.Sl. The or- 
iginal sec-tion read as folltiws: 

"Any telegraph corporation, organized 
under this title, has power and right to 
use the publi- loacJs and|ftigliways in 
this state, or on the lino cTr their route, 
for the purpose of erecting posts or poles 
on or aloni; the .same, to sustain the 
wiles or fixtures; pi-4)vided. however, 
that the same shall be so loeat' d as in no 
way to interferi' with the safety or con- 
\tiilen<e of ordinary travel o?i or over 
the said roail or highways." 

(.'hapter 7:; of ihe laws of l.Ssl simil> 
I)rovides for the insertiim of the woiil.-, 
"c^r teb'phones," after the word "tele- 
graph," in the section quoted, so that it 
reads: "Any it^legraph or telephcn* 
corporation." etc. 

The Duluth Telephoiu' company is. 
therefore, relying upon proving that the 
streets and alleys of the c-ity are pui)'le 
roads and highway.-^, within the mean- 
ing i>f section 42 of chapter ^4 of the laws 
of 187S.

one of their entertainments, which are 
just now being received with great ap- 
plause in the Twin Cities, as they have 
been in Chicago and the East. George

gant views with calcium light, of gla-

Miss Blanche Walsh and Melbourne 
MacDowell appeared at the Lyceum 
last evening in a magnilicent produc- 
tion of Sardou's great play, "Cleo- 
patra. " The audience was a very large 
one, every seat in the theater being 
tilled. The performance gave complete 
satisfaetion and the players were given 
generous applause. 

"Cleopatra" has l>een produced here 
several limes by the late Fanny Daven- 
port and the interest In last evening's 
production lay not in the play itself, 
but in the appearance of Miss Walsh in 
the nde of Cleopatra for the Hrsl time 
here. Admirers of Miss Davenport 
watched the new star closcdy and as 
the play proceeded and the develop- 
ment of the character grew upon theiu. 
they could not but concede that the 
mantle of the great woman who pre- 
ceded her had fallen upon worthy 
shoulders. Miss Walsh has all Ihe at- 
tributes necessaiy for a great Cleopatra. 
She has youth, llgure. strength and 
vocal power and he-r apjiearance as the 
beautiful sorceicss of the Nile was all 
that could be desired. There is little in 
the way of emotion that is not embejclied 
in the c'haractc-r of Cleopatra, passion- 
ale loVe, tenderness, fierce- aihl re- 
ve-ngcful jealousy, sometimes the vin- 
dietiveiiess of the tigress and again 
with all Ihe we-akne-ss of the feminine 
nature-. .Ml the phases of this UKist re- 
markable c haracte-r were faithfully and 
admirably presi-ntcd by Miss Walsh. In 
the- scene wheie the messenger informs 
lier of the marriage of .\ntony. while 
possibly her frenzj of ang<r did not 
rise to cjulte the height as that of .Miss 
Davenport, she developed power that 
was awe-inspiring. The death scene 
was excellently done. 

Mr. MacDowell is the same handsome 
and conscientious actor that he has al- 
ways been. His Mark Antcm.v is ad- 
admirable, the work of an artist. 

The company is very good through- 

The mounting of the production i." 
stupendous. Kvery sce>ne was a beauti- 
ful picture, with the terrace scene at 
Memphis as the crowning triuni)-h of 
them all. A more beautiful picture 
was never set upon the stage. Th<> fam- 
ous storm scene Is terribly realistic and 
tenor inspiring. 

This afternoon "Cleopatra" la being 
repeated and this evening "F'edora" 
will be seen.

Ordir as to Removal of Sidowalk 
Obstractions Is Wsil Taktn. 

A maiden fair, with burnished hair, 
came tripping down the street; her face se- 
rene, her age is— gee whiz! but she was 
sweet. On a dry goods box. loaded down 
with socks, her skirt i^aught with a joli 
that sook her curls, but the word she u^ed 
must be «-.xcnsed— for she's one of Dii- 
liith's nicest girls. 

That is a poor imitation of the way Chief 
of Police Crandall describes a little inci- 
dent that happened yesterday and only 
goes to prove that second hand deabi.s

Bell Insolvency Mat ler Closed 

and Assignee Harkell Is 


The old Bell bank insolvency matter 

is at last, wound up. and this moi nlng 

Judge Cant in district court made an 

order discharging Clinton Markell as 

receiver and his bondsmen, and a fur- 
ther order releasing H. H. Bell from all 
lialdlitv on the claims of those who filed 

release.* and participated in the cJivi- 
sion of the assets. The Bell bank 
failed in ISjttt. It involved In its fail- 
ure a very large nuinb^i- c»r people uho 
had money on deposit there. 

There is still $1453.89 left for the 
creditors who have not yet called f<jr 
their final dividends, but as the as- 
signee wished to have the estate cleared 
up and himself and his bondsmen dis- 
charged, checks for dividends 
have iieen turned over to George F. 
Chester, clerk of district court, and 
those to whom the checks belong may 
obtain them from him. Most of the 
amounts are very small, the largest 
being t'A, and the smallest 4 cents. The 
receiver has been unable to reach any 
of these people, and it is probable that 
a large share of the money will join the 
fund the district court alread.v has 
waiting for claimants who have not 
shown up in years and who probably 
will never emerge from the mist in 
which they have disappeared.

Mr. Hagley said this morning that th.- 
re(iuest for a in wages f.>r th- 
firemen was due to the fact that among 
the boys there are a numi). r of Bpecial 
lU'chanics. su<h as blacksmiths, har- 
ness makers, painters, machinists and 
iminy other tradesmen, an.l that the 
employment of these men lias in tii" 
past year saved the city many dollars. 
Now that the demand for men witli 
trades has increased there is troubU- in 
keeping them at their present salaries. 
The city had at the first of the year 
sixty-nine nien in the tire departirient, 
and a raise of $.'> a montli in wages 
iiicans an incicase of expenses to the 
an:.iiii;t of $:!4." per month. The com- 
missioners J)elieved that it is better to 
keep the experienced men at an in- 
crease of wages than tfi employ new- 
men at the old wages.

'twenty-nine years. The normal tem- 
perature for the month should be ;;^.

SATURDAY, MARCH 31, 1900. 

Peace on Earth 


By F. W. Fitzpatrick. 

(All Rights Reserved.) 

(Continued From La:-:t Satur.lay.) 

Years ago I learned and -have since 
occasionally used "short-hand." and 
sketching more or less from life has been 
a pastime of mine since early youth. I 
set about my work with a vim and, 
strange as it may seem, much as if I had 
never done aught else but take dictation 
from spooks and sketch supernatural 

Amerioan, English, French, German 
and Russian papers did the old man 
show me. I could read most of them 
off-hand; the Russian bothered me 
most. Then, .seemingly without any 
particular reason, he would point out an 
item now and then that my friend, from 
where he stood, would read off to me In 
English, regardless of which language it 
wa.« printed in. My pen fairly flew over 
those narrow naje pages. I begrudged 
the time it took to dip that pen in ink, 
and lol tht-re, Iwtween my fingers was a 
fountain pen, that neither clogged nor 
dropptd ink all over everything, a pen, 
surely, of some heavenly make. 

I wished I could have used both hands, 
one to write and one to sketch — to take 
time for the drawing seemed wasteful, 
yet those pictures weer so grand. Per- 
haps their sul)limity discouraged my at- 
tempts to even outline them. The not»'s 
dictated to me by my friend I have writ- 
ten (-ut in the order they were given me, 
datid, and with the names of the news- 
papt-r.s thty were taken fram — muHtly 
editorial comments I find — ?ind they, 
with the notes 1 made the next day. 
while the whole thing was .still fresh in 
my mind, fill a book larger than an 
average magazine. I have read and re- 
read them, oh: so many times since that 
eventful night. My acimaintan'es evi ii 
notice that I am growing grey and 
really becoming serious. Is it to be 
wondered at? 

1 asked my friend last week if It 
would be a bre.'ich of confidence, or in 
any way out of order, for me to 
those notes. He answered that he 
hardly thought I would do so merely for 
gain, hut that he knew my motives and, 
if the notes were so used, judici msiy 
and to help my fellowmen, to prepare 
them for what was to come, he knew no 
reason why I should not use at 
portions of them. 

I set to work, and htre present, neces- 
sarily, but a mere cursory glimpse nf 
that book, a skimming-over of it.« pages. 
a condensation of the events of years 
Into the space of this article! It Is pos. 
slble to do that fairly satisfactorily 
when dealing with the past, when it re- 
quires but a word to bring to mind a 
whole train of related events. l)ut no one 
can appreciate how diflkult it is to writ ; 
only a little when one can and wish- s to 
tell .so muih about matters absolutely 
unknown and to a degree Incomprehen- 
sible to his fellows. 

The first four extractn I took down 
"Le Pays:" 

Quebec, March 5, IfrfX*.— "Why should 
we send more men to Africa to de- 
prive another people of their lilieny 
and place them under the same yoke 
that chafes our necks, and why should 
England, to curry favor with the 
Americans, permanently .eettle the 
Alaskan boundary to .^ur disadvantage 
and over our heads? * * • It Is true 
we strike for our llbt-rty. the liberty 
our fathers bled for in '37." • • * 

Morning Tribune: 
Seattle. March 16, 1900.— England has 
been exceedingly quiet about it. but 
has massed between 30.000 and 40,000 
troops near Victoria, Esciuimnult and 
other Canadian Pacific points * • • 
and is fitting out in nearby ports a 
dozen transports. That she is buying 
most of her supplies from us is cer- 
tainly helpful. :--nd 1 n.iks much as if 
she were in a hurry to look .\fter her 
Eastern interests ♦ • • fearful of a 
Russian coup • • •" 

Le Gaulois: 

Paris, April 2. 1900.— The di.sgr.ifeful 
scene of \ cslerday in the chanilx-r. re- 
sulting in the ejection and serious in- 
juiy to Mr. Leygucs. is a fair sample 
of what We may expect under the new 


Deutsche Berliner Zeitung: 
Perlln. April ^. 1»00.— England's claim 
that our c<msular officers have inter- 
fered in the affairs of the Tonga di=- 
tri -t. that was recently portitinod oft 
to her as her share rf the Sanmin ter- 
rii. ry. .«hi)ws how slight an cxcu.'-c sh*- 
Is ready to seize in attempting tii 
bother us now that she Is reasonably 
sure cf full American support • • *" 

The.'^o are fair examples of the matter 
I read. General unrc>st among the na- 
tions, a groping about to determine who 
was friend or foe. I read a long recital, 
in the "Novoe Wremia." of St. Peters- 
burg, telling of England's profitable 
wars in the How she had over- 
thrown Spain from its supremacy upon 
the .seas, and had humbled Holland in 
the .'•ixteenth and seventeenth centuries, 
then the two greatest powers in the 
world. How she had then taken their 
places in the world's affairs, and had. 
little by little, crept up since ihen to a 
point where she felt she could dictato 
to or cajole all nations. It expressed 
surprise that the T'nited States, that had 
had so much to thank France and Rus- 
sia for in the hour of its struggles, could 
now turn against them and play cat's- 
paw to its old enemy and present rival, 

I read and noted French coniments 
upon the developments in its friend's 
country. Russia, a' country of l?,0.rt00.000 
people, and that could and keep an 
army of :,'0.OOO.0Ort men. the .ipeninc: up of 
Siberia, the incoming of over 700,000 im- 
migrants in the past year, th" compl'->- 
lion of and projecting of other vast sys- 
tems of railway, tbt- enirmous outpias 
of coal, of Iron and of gold, and i>f its 
wonderful wheat < roj) that in 15<!»9 ma- 
turoci in lO:; days, a month before th^ 
CI op of sunny France had ripened! 

I read of c-rmcossions to Russia of 
ports and territory in Persia, that is 
only too glad to open itself to the com- 
mercial impetus its northern friend's 
cf>ming will give it; ctmcessions alarm- 
ingly near the Afghan border, and very 
thorns in England's side. 

The "Tokio Journal of Commerce" 
vails over the now assured partition of 
China, with the giant's slice to Ru.ssia. 
I: cannot forget that country's interfer- 
ence with its own attempted gobble in 
China t>f a few years ago. 

France, in May of 11)00. nearly brings 
on a colos.sal row by absolutely refusing 
to agree to our "orcn door" demand in 
the extension to the territory she ha." 
just acquired, in addition to her Tonquin 
possessions, and Japan, at the same 
time, stirs up unpleasantness by harping 
ah.iMt her Korean claims. 

The latter part of May sees all Samoan 
and other differences absolutely, seem- 
ingly permanently and agreeably settled 
between England, Germany, Japan anj 

ourselves. France is in mourning— a 
great fire in Paris, the collapse jf one of 
the great exposition buildings, and hun- 
dreds of lives lost; a storm on the Pa- 
cific that plays havoc on the Californian 
coast, and I read, also, of wondrous 
finds of golil in Oregon. 

The "Washington Post" of May 18 an- 
nounced the death from pneumonia of 
my friend — he dictated the item without 
a tremor In his voice, and when. In my 
surprise, I let drop the pen from my he stooped, picked it up and 
handed It back to me as Impassibly as if 
what he had read was not of the slight- 
est Importance to him. He waited a 
moment for me to get over the shock, 
then motioned me to proceed. Since 
then I have attemted to speak to him 
aitout it, but he always changes the 
toriic. begs me to act as if I did not know 
It. but wants me to be often with him. 
And. by the way. It Is passing strange 
that v.e do so seldom speak of that 
whole performance, or manifestation, 
and that I have never expressed. n«>r do 
I feel, any desire to have another. Not 
that I was scared, nor that I dread an- 
other, but I suppose It is so ordamed. 
You say I am a convert to beliefs oc- 
cult; perhaps I am. Who would not be 
under similar circumstances? 

Then I read of wonderful activity in 
the shipyards of the world: the "New 
York World" of June 3. 1900. saying of 
our own waters: "Never was legisla- 
te n more quickly enacted — JIOO.OOO.OOO 
appropriated for immediate use of the 
navy department, and Its .secretary au- 
thorized to order twenty flrfct-class 
battleships and cruisers without waiting 
for bids. * • • The vast stores of 
clothing, canned goods, improved arm:* 
and ammunitions at our various sta- 
tions show the activity and Improve- 
n:ent in the methods of our depart- 
ments. * • • While we are anxious 
for the news and will exert every legiti- 
mate endeavor to obtain it, we are glad 
to note that the departments hav • 
learned how to keep their business to 
themselves. • • • It Is through this 
country's too zealous press that our 
enemies are warned of our every act and 
intent. They need no spies. * * * 
A.S in other countries navy yards and 
shipbuilding establishments no pass, 
whoever it may be signed by, will get 
anothe rthan a naval ofOcer thriiugh the 
entrance • • • and the al)stractlon. 
.sale, or use outside of official necessities 
of any plan, drawing or Information 
gained by the ofUcors. clerks or other 
tmployes. while in these yards, etc, 
etc.. has been made an offence, 'punish- 
able iiy imprisonment for a term not less 
than twenty years.' * • •" 

Then there were French and Italian 
comments upon Germany's colonization 
Schemes, her failure In Africa to get 
many more than 1000 people to stay 
there, her better luck In China, and her 
lapid strides in cobmizing the Euphrates 
valley. Ru.^sian fls.^uranccc tbat she had 
no designs upon India, but that she fe't 
her claims in I'ersia. Turkey, Afghani.- 
tan. Tibet and China ought not to oe 
opi'O.sed by England nor any of the other 

Brief notices there were that Vasquez 
had stirred up sirlfe in San Domingo; 
that England objected to the sale of the 
Gallpagos islands to Russia; that Spain 
was gathering her few ships .at Cadiz 
and showed unwonted activity in. and 
much c-omlng and going to, the Canary 
isles. The Liverpool Chronicle of June 
10. 19011. quotes the earl of Shaftesbury, 
in an "inspired" address as sayiuf,: 
"No nation ha.s a right to govern Itself 
as It chooses, if its policy is objection- 
able to the majority of the powers." A 
most significant utterance. 

The New York Sun of June 14 resents 
the wording of the first encyclical letter 
of the new pope. Alexander IX, to the 
church In this country, in w hich he says 
the exi)ellcd friars must be reinstalled in 
tiii' Philippines, and all the church'.- 
powers and former rights must be 
acknowledged by the new government 
of those islands. Then a little further 
the 'same paper comments, also edi- 
torially, upon the prince of Wales' corn- 
nation speech, in .which he says that 
" " • • liy any means consistent 
with English honor we (the English) 
must establish peaceful and just deal- 
mcs with all nations, and see to it that 
they in turn live by the same standard." 
The month of June will be an eventful 
one it would seem, for the Communlcado 
Italia of the 2r>th tells of the assembling 
of the "sacred college" to elect another 
p.ipe to succeed Alexander IX. who 
"succumbed, under the knife of tb.- 
surgeon operating upon him to remove 
the tumor lately noticed upon the neck 
of his holiness." 

The San Francisco Chronicle of Juno 
28 is jubilant over the completion of th*^ 
Pacific cable to the Hawaiian islands, 
and the starting of the cable ships from 
there westward. 

The London Spectator of July 1 an- 
nounces the purchase by England of 
Delagoa bay from Portugal, and the 
Kioto (Japan) Gazette of same date 
raises a wail about "the continued pre.-^- 
ence of the large Russian fleet In th- 
Naga.saki harbor, where It was suppose 1 
to winter cmly." 

The New York Journal of the 29th has 
telegraphic Information that Germany i^ 
cxac tly dc ubling its navy, and is build- 
ing some novel forms of ships. The 
reichstag is opposing the emperor's de- 
mands for troops and an increased 
budget, but it is positively known that 
in the forthcoming elections the people 
will Ih? with him. 

The Paris Temps of July 3 seems 
gratifed that Pope Sextus VI is evi- 
dently 1 ppo.sed to England, in spite of 
her advances and concessions to the 
church, laments that the Italian papers 
should take sides with the English, and 
is jubilant that Austria is so pronounce.! 
in her o|>position to all things llnglish. 
It openly advocates that France and 
Russia should "assist" the Boers, who 
have patched up their differences with 
their Orange and native neighbors, in 
another attempt at driving the English 
from out of the gold territory altogether. 
The Washingt>m Star of July .'• f>rlnts 
the text In full of the protest sent by 
• 'termany. England and the United 
States to the Netherlands' government 
against the inhumanity of the war that 
country has been waging, with few in- 
terml.sslons. against the Acheenese, in 
the Dutch West Indies, since 1873. 

The Heraldo of Madrid, dated July 14. 
remarks that "There are times when all 
the affairs of the world seem to be mov- 
ing with the geographical precision and 
regularity that does old Mother Earth; 
then, again, other times there a^e when 
it woulcl seem that our planet must have 
struck some obstruction in its rotation 
that disturbed everything upon it. • • * 
The events of recent da>s would indicate 
that we are experiencing some such a 
time. • • ♦ Some of the events we 
can cnntrmplate with merely curiosity, 
wonderment at what their outcome may 
be. but others there have been that 
sends a shudder through us." 

Four days later the New York Post 
says: "The practical abdication of the

"What has become of all the dancers, 
singers, farce comedians and burlesque 
women who were at different times in the 
employ of Charles Hoyt and later i.< 
the ranks of the Hoyt & McKee shows?" 
was the cjuestlon which got Luke Phelps. 
Charley Buckley, "Majah" Turner and 
others formerly in the employ of the

These were some of the interesting facts 
brought to the surface, says the New 
Viirk Telegraph.

Hoy I & McKee married millionaires. Ei 
sie' l..ombard, a Baltimore girl, was on 
the stage little more than one season,

b;ii.(l is an immensely wealthy Bostioi 
h'lr.btr mtrchant. with a beautiful nome 
In the aristocratic Back Bay section of 
l!ic lo« n C'l beans. 

Most fo.ks are familiar with the hlstctry 
of Miiy Yohe. who ran away from a dot- 
ing husband and a luxurious home in 
Pittsbure to go on the stage. She was 
one of the earliest of the Hovt & Mo- 
Kee stars. Sh»> went to England to lill 
vaudeville engagements, and is now more 
or less happily married to a genuine Ea.^- 
lish nobleman— Lord Hope. 

I.-!abelle Coe, who was also a remark- 
ably pretty woman, and a talented 
actress, became the wife of Frank Mc- 
Kee, Mr. Hoyt's partner, and they have 
one of the happiest homes in the I'nltc.5 
States, the pet of which Is a daughter 
about 11! years old. 

Miss Coe made her first big success as 
Mrs. Brooklyn Bridge In "A Tin Soldier." 
Later she played the title role in 
"Xiobe" (which was not a Hoyt & Mc- 
Kee show I. and the Widow In "A Trip 
to Chinatown." 

Maude Adams, who was such a timid, 
sbrinknc: little figure In "A Midniehr 
Itell," has become one of the greatest 
money making stars in the United States 
under the direction of Charles Froh- 

Sarah Madden, one of the first of the

Anna Boyd, who married Comedian Joe 
Coyne, is tilling dates in vaudeville. 
Helen Relmer, one of the best actresses 
ever on a Hoyt & McKee salary list, is 
playing an economic role with Willie Col- 
lier's company In "Mr. Smooth." Patrice 
is one Qf the headiiners always welcome 
in the continuous performance houses on 
the Keith, Proctor a4>d Orpheum circuits, 
and pretty Nettie Lyford is still in the 
shows ut Weber & Fields'. 

Sadie Martinot, the former Mrs. Max 
Figman, Is still on tho road with farce 
comedy. She created the role of the 
wiciow In "A Stranger In New York." 
Queenle V'assar, who was the widow of 
Harry Kernell when she married the 
son of Mrs. Lynch, the woman who runs 
the big diamond store on broadway, was 
last seen In New York as a member of 
May Irwin's company. 

Anna Robinson feels it incompatible 
with her dignity to show herself on the 
stage these days. Beside, she is too much 
Infatuated with her bijou flat to leave 
it for more than an hour at a time. 

Clalresse Agnew, who was plain Clara 
Robinson when she was a child out In 
San Francisco, has changed her name to 
Mrs." Reed, and that Is the name on the 
door plate of one of the most gorgeous

however, have nicknamed her the Count- 
ess Castlemaine. 


Mamie Gilroy, notwlthstandint; that 
her singing voice left her some time ago,

Dorothy Sherrod, who Is the wife of 
Tim Murphy, and whose ripht name o^- 
fore her marriage was Eva Saunders, 
is now to be seen In the ingenue role in 
"The Carpetbagger." 

Four of the most popular women ever 
employed by Hoyt & McKee are dead. 
Two of t.iese were wives of Chariev 
Hoyt. The first was dainty little Flora 
Walsh, and the second, the statelv (Caro- 
line MIskel. Sadie MacDonald died in

Curtis, who was the saucv lunch counter 
Kirl in "A Hole In the Ground." died a 
few years after her marrlape to Fred 
Zweifel. one of the Hoyt & McKee busi- 
ness managers. 

More men than women became prom- 
in'*nt imder this management. Frank 
Daniels got his real hold on the atTec- 
tlons of the public through his starring 
to«rs in "A Rag Baby," when he had his 
f.imous bu'ldog Spore with him, and al-

who have been featured In several of ihe 
Hoyt plays, are touring the ontlvlng dis- 

tricts in "A Temperance Town." Both 
have recently figured in sensational di- 
vorce suits. Both were defendants in 
suits brought by their wives on statu- 
tory grounds. Harry Gilfoll. who could 
play swell barteui^lers, whistle and give 
imitations, is starring in 'A Trip to 
Chinatown' in backwoods sections under 
the direction of Fred Wright. 

George Beane, who Is a real actor if 
ever there was one with Hoyt & McKee. 
is playing leading roles with May Ir- 
win's company in "Sister Mary." Paul 
Arthur, who played juveniles in the 
earlier Hoyt farces like "A Tin Soldier," 
is a favorite in London, where he has 
been living and acting for a number of 
years, ever since the trouble with his 
wife. Katherine Gray. 

Burt Haverley is in the vaudevilles. 
Bert Riddle, wha was an actor man in 
"A Rag Baby" is living in qniet retire-

'The Neglected Art «^«<^<^«^ 
SSSS Of Saying Good-By 

A graceful exit from a drawing room 
has always been an art, and the way in 
which this little act is accomplished 
stamps one at once as a person of refine- 
mt-nt and good breading or the 
Nothing will Impress upon a hostess and 
her guests so plea.sant a personal recol- 
kction as a graceful leave taking. In 
sjjlte c f the time-worn admonition in 
Utter writing always to say what cme 
has to say and stop when that is done, 
it is proverbial that womm always leave 
the most lnii>ortant part of a letter f"r 
the postscrlp. So, in making calls, wo- 
men frequently defer their most nm- 
rrentous announcements until after they 
have risen and are about to take their 
leave. In Washington .••ociet;/ leave tak- 
ing has been reduced to a fine art. (>f there Is no other place In this 
Ci.untry where visiting is made so much 
matte r of business. 

One who is unaceust nned to makin.r 
formal calls should keep in mind the 
point of leaving, and when the call i.- 
ended rise quickly and easily, shakc> 
hands with her hijstess, making sonv' 
pleasant, friendly remark as she doe.? 
so, and go directly out. French critics, 
and some English, also, I believe, ha^e 
.said of American women that they aiv 
absolutely lacking in repo.Me of manner, 
and that no matter how little they have 
to say that is worth the .saying they feel 
obliged upon all occasion? to make con- 
versation. Also, that they do not kno.v 
when or how to leave. Despite these 
very uncomplimentary opinions, there 
is cause for rejoicing that the women 
of An-.erlca possess less repose than 
the English and somewhat more than 
the French. 

Over anxiety to do the correct \h\vA 
causes one to appear self-conscious and 
awkward. One should cultivate conli- 
dence in oneself, and should do what- 
ever one has to do In as simple and 
natural a way as possible. Naturalnes-s 
is the most potent charm in any on* — 
man or woman. To stand at the door 
of the drawing room and gossip after one 
has risen to cjepart. keeping the hoste.;.ji 
standing and uneasy, while the oih -r 
guests impatient 1> wait for a few worc's 
If fere luinging their visits to a close, is 
ni't cmly selfish, but the height of ill- 
brteding. Noncompliance with acxepted 
customs may be forgiven in a genius or 
a groat hero, but an ordinary mortal 
must mind his "p's and q's" in this as 
in all other things connected with social 

A very clever and interesting letter 
appeared in the Criterion some monfi>s 
sinc-e on "The Lingering Oood-bye" 
which touched upon this particular 
branch of the questicm. The writer, 
speaking of a naval officer whom he ni": 
in the drawing room of a common 
acquaintance, says: 

"He .seemed very shy. as though much 
more accustomed to the society of the 
wardroom than that of a lady's parlor. 
He was rather hard to draw out, and 
blushed when the charming woman upon 
whom he was calling spoke to him in 
her frirndly effort to make him feel at 
ease. At length he got up to go, sayin-.; 
that he had an engagement for dinn- r 
and must go to his hotel to dress. When 
he was almut to shake hands somethinsr 
was said of the campaign In the se is 
about Cuba. Now our naval ofTicer 
at home. About this he could spin a 
yarn as well as the next one. Hesitat- 
ingly at first he began, and little by littl -, 
emboldened by the interest his n<irrati\e 
excited, he continued until he had toid 

all about the blockades of the Cuban 
ports, the search for the Spanish fleet 
atid the final destruction of Cervora'.s 
ships. We stood for fifteen minutes n- 
so. In the beginning, and then sat down 
again. He talked on and <m, t^Mling one 
cf the most fascinating tales to which I 
ever listened. It was graphic, it was 
realistic, it was modest, and. most of all. 
it was convin.Mng. This man, those wh m 
had heard him felt, had done things, 
had been a part of great happenings. 
And yet if he had not lingered over his 
good-bye he would have gone away leav- 
ing a very faint impression of a shy and 
awkward man. As it was. he went 
away finally bearing our admiration and 
friendship, and also a most corcJial in- 
vitaticm to come again. I am sure he 
was very late for dinner. If he got there 
at all. but I am sure he began the win- 
ring that afternoon <it .«tomethlng better 
than a. dinner, for when I called at that 
same house the other day and found the 
naval rfflcer present I detected an un- 
mistakaide love light in a fair maid's 
eyep. And so. instead of the dinner 
'.vhich was thrown over, he has prob- 
ably prepared for himself a perpetuil 
feast. Evt n things not good In them- 
selves sometimes lead to what Is truly 

Having received an Invitation to a 
card party from one who has never 
called upon me. but inclosing her calling 
card in the invitation, would it be cor- 
rect to accept or decline the invitation? 
What excuse should I give In declining? 
Should I call upon the lady, and, when 
I entertain, should I Invite her? 


The sender of the Invitation would 
have been more polite if she had call.'cl 
upon you in jierson, but the card stands 
for a call, and you could, with perfect 
propriety, accept the invitation. If you 
wish to decline, the form of your re- 
grets must depend upon circumstances. 
it is never courteous to decline an invi- 
tation without giving a reason. A per- 
fectly correct formula is the following: 
"Mrs. Jones regrets that a previous en- 
gagement (or an indisposition, or ab- 
sence frimi t'ne city, or whatever reason 
you \v ish to give) \\ ill prevent her from 
accepting Mrs. Smith's pc^llte invitation 
for Thursday evening. " You should 
certainly c"all and should invite the hos- 
tess t.i your next entertainment, if it lie 
convenient for you to do so. 

At a small Informal afternoon tea. if 
you should happen to drop In, should 
\<ru remove your gloves while drinking 
tea. and should you yourself put your 
cup back on the tea table, or wait for 
the hostess to do so? 


You should not ordinarily remove your 
gloves at a tea. but If It be a family 
affair you may consult your own com- 
fort, and place your cup. when you 
have finished, on the table with the 
others, or on the nearest convenient re- 

After spending the evening at a 
friend's house, and after being escorted 
home by one of the young men present, 
would it be gocxl form for me to ask him 

If you know him well, and the hour 
V)c not late, and there be others of the 
family about the house, you might, with 
perfect propriety, ask him to come in. 
If he be taking you home for the first 
time you should not. 


Brought Him 
Good Luck 

One Instance In Which 

Morphine Yielded a 

Small Fortune. 

"I see gambling is running widt open 
In Colorado again." said Walter Harrl.=, 
a cattleman of Topeka at the Delevai . 
"I don't suppose, though, it is ixa wide 
open now as it was in the late 80s. T 
was In Manitou every summer at that 
time, and the high games that u.sed to 
run at some of the clubs would be an eye 
opener to gamblers of the present day. 
Cattlemen were making monev then, a.s 
were the miners, and Ihev used to meet j j 
M.inltou and try for each other's iK)ckei- 
books, wltli the result that the protes- 
sional gamblers got the money, ' says iht 
Denver Republican. 

"I remember how one young fellow 
made to quit a winner against his wii!. 
His name was Rich. He was a nephc^^w <t 
one of the big jiaper men. and his folks 
kej)t him supplied with money, a regular 
allowance. He had been gambling every 
cent of It, letting his bills pile up for hotc;! 
and livery and everything else. His peo- 
ple sent him word that they wouldn't 
Send any more money, and said if he got 
into trouble he'd have to get out himseif. 
His creditors were just about readv to 
jump cmto him, when one night he maccc 
a big winning. He was playing faro m 
the club that's torn down now. 

"I suppose he had S-KKKI or $.VI00 in front 
of him when his friends began trying lo 
persuade him to quit. He was just like 
all the rest of them, going to break the 
bank and all that sort of thing, and he 
wouldn't quit. 

"It was a red hot night for Manitou, 
and with the excitement and all Rich had 
pulled off his coat and rolled up his 
sleeves. There wa.s a doctor among hi-c 
friends, and though he hadn't said any- 
thing to Rich, I suppose he felt a respon- 
sibility, because the young fellow had 
coire out her^for his health and had 
been referred TO the Manitou dc<ctor by 
the doetor he had at home. 

"I was watching the play, though I 
didn't know any of the people. I saw tiie 
doctor turn his bark to the crowd for a 
minute and fiddle with something he had 
taken out of his pocket. Then he walked 
over to Rich and put his hand on his 
bare arm. 'You need a .sedative,' he said. 
Qui<k as a flash he took the hypodermic 
syringe he had in his hand and fired a 
charge Into Rich's arm. 

"Rich said 'Oughl' and grabbed at the 
place where he had been pricked, bul the 
deal was going on and he turned to that 
again. Before half the cards were out 
his head settled on the table, he com- 
menced to draw good, long breaths and 
was alseep. 

"The doctor took the chips cashed them 
In. then he took and wrote a receipt for 
the money and gave It to another »rlend 
of Rich's to keep. Then he took Rich, 
loaded him Into a carriage, took him up to 
his office and watched over him until he 
came around, the next day. 

Paris. March 1.— Believing that a vast 
number of your readers would gladly ' 
visit the exposition if they were confident ' 
they could effect it by the expenditure 
of a reasonable sum, and. too, had the 
assurance of being able to manage for 
themselves in a country where a foreign 
language is spoken, I will endeavcir to 
give a close approximation of the expense 
and some suggestion that will facilitaic 
the sojourn here. 

One can sail from New York or Mont- 
real for about the same passage money, 
and as the fare from Detroit to New 
York is nearly the same as from Detroit 
to Montreal, one may consult his desire 
as to which city he will see; however, it 
Is cheaper via Montreal, both In the mat- 
ter of railroad fare and ocean passage. 

I should by all means visit London, 
hence the route I map out. 

A first cabin ticket from Montreal to 
London via Liverpool costs $50, but if one 
Is cutting all superfluous, buv 
, a second cabin for $35. The state rooms 
. are the same as first cabin— furnishings 
and bed; the table, however, differs — 
fewer courses, with a noon dinner, where- 
as first cabin passengers are served with 
six-o'clock dinners. Steamer tickets can ! 
be procured in Duluth, and if a second ! 
I cabin be taken, a railroad ticket cq.n be 
I purchas^ed at less than regular first-class ' 
! fare, which with an order from the steam- ! 
boat company's agent, gives you the pri- ', 
vilege of the flrst-class coaches. Be sure 
to stipulate London, as the rate Is the 
same as to Ilverpool, while it costs 
something like $5 to get from Liverpool 
; to London. The $15 saved by using second 
j cabin will give you ten days in Londoii. 
! Take a room in the centre of the city 
— CJreat Ormand street is a good locality i 
—so as to be in easy reach of ail attrac- i 
tions. Visit Westminister Abbey. St. 
Paul's cathedral, the Temple — Goldsmith • 
is buried here— British museum. National .' 
Gallery, Tate's gallery, the Tower, Tower' 
bridge, London bridge, Llncoln's^nn, i 
Greys Inn, Old Curiositv Shop, Madam . 
Tussauds. Go to Regent an* Oxford 
street for the shops. 

All over London you will find bakerv 
lunches, strictly first class, where tlie 
best of coffee may be had for 3 pennies tO 
cents), small cups 2 pennies (4 cents), pal- 
try of every kind— excellent, at moderate 
price. I advise you to gorge yourself, for 
when you reach Paris, no more pies do 
you see and cakes are quite beyond the 
purse of the commercial traveler. Also 
scattered through London are excellent 
grill rooms. Get your meat and vegeta- 
bles here — don't try their coftee; eschew 
their pastry. If you cannot make a des- \ 
sort of cheese, walk a block or so to the J 
nearest "A. B. C." lunch room. Coffee, 
too, make the most of, for nothing but 
"cafe au lait" and "cafe noir" is to be had 
in Paris, tlie former made of black coffct . 
chlckory and hot milk; the latter— 1 don t 
know how they make it — we will never 
need to know— suffice it to say, it is cer- 
tainly burned. Mocha and Java with 
whipped cream is a luxury unknown in 

When you are ready to leave London, 
get a second class ticket direct to Paris 
(royalty alone travel first class.). Take the 
London Bridge station for New Haven, ' 
where the boat Is waiting to transfer you j 
to Dieppe, where yavi again take the rail- 1 
road for I'aris. Ten hours will accomplish 
the journey. If you read "Trilby" you will 
learn Little Billle lodged at Hotel Corne- j 
ille. If you know of no other p''ace In Paris. ' 
go there. I have a friend there and he sa;. s 
it is all right. However there are any 
number In the vicinity. The Corneille is 
opposite the Odeon theater In Rue Cor- 
neille (pronounced ru Cor-nay.) 

When you reach Paris take a cab. if 
you do not speak F'rench, write your des- 
tination, and hand to the cocher— pay him 
4 francs (40 cents). The fare is but 3.i 
cents d franc 50 centimes) to any part of 
the city, but you are expected to give .i 

lip to the cabman— they get no salary. All 
they have is the tip. Twenty-five sen- 
times (5 cents) Is sufficient, but if you 
have luggage, and especially if you are 
not conversant with French money, give 
him 2 france. You cannot mistake a 2- 
franc piece, nearl
